Winners at FIFO 2012

The Tahiti-based doco festival has wrapped for another year, handing out its prizes at the closing ceremony. Two French Polynesian and three Australian titles took the gongs.

The special mentions went to Elaine Koller’s My Adopted Family, Tom  Zubrycki’s The Hungry Tide and James  Bradley’s Ochre and Inch, while Mary  Helen  Villierme’s The Elected Official, Pouvanaa Metua took the audience award.

The winner of the Grand Prix was Natasha  Gadd and Rhys  Graham’s Murundak, Songs of Freedom.

Unusually at FIFO no NZ films were rewarded at the ceremony, despite six of the 17 films in competition and six of 19 out of competition being from here. Of the films awarded prizes the winner of the audience award, The Elected Official, Pouvanaa Metua, screened out of competition.
