Florian Habicht has joined the roster of Curious for commercial work.
One of the more singular voices in NZ filmmaking, he’s probably best-known outside the industry for his work overseas, the New York-shot Love Story, which opened the 2011 NZIFF and went to pick up three gongs at the one and only edition of the AFTAs.
When the film played the London International Film Festival, Habicht leveraged a meeting with fellow drainpipe jeans aficionado, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, which led to Pulp: a Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets. The film premiered at SXSW, opened the UK’s premiere documnetary festival, Sheffield Doc|Fest, and played the NZIFF and a bunch of other international festivals, collecting awards as it went.
As he explained at the recent Big Screen Symposium, he’s currently busy with doco feature Spookers in post and advancing a feature project up north, where he previously shot Kaikohe Demolition.
