NZ shows among World’s Best

The New York Festivals’ World’s Best TV & Film Awards has named several NZ titles in the running for gongs, which will be handed out in April.

SPP’s The Brokenwood Mysteries and Lippy Pictures’ Field Punishment No 1 are nominated in drama categories, while Bryan Bruce’s Red Sky has Passion In Paradise up for a docudrama award. Bruce was a winner at last year’s NYF with Mind the Gap.

The Sam Neill-starring first season of Peaky Blinders is nominated by BBC WW from Australia in the Best Editing category.

Also nominated from Australia, this time courtesy of Foxtel, is Great Southern Television’s Coast Australia, in the Documentary/Information Program Promotion category. On the same day the NYF nominees were announced, Coast Australia was also named a finalist for Australia’s pay TV gongfest, the ASTRAS.

Closer to home Zeitgeist Productions’ Davey Hughes Untamed and Radar Across the Pacific are both up for an award in the Travel & Tourism category, while NHNZ has a nomination for Life Force 2 in the Nature & Wildlife category.

Among the friends and neighbours, NHNZ stablemates picked up a pair of nominations. Australia’s Northern Pictures’ Changing Minds: The Inside Story nominated for Human Concerns and Singapore’s Beach House Pictures’ Chineseness – Li Chen nominated in the Arts category, having recently been a nominee at December’s Asian TV Awards.

The New York Festivals TV & Film Awards will be presented on 14 April in Las Vegas. The ASTRAS (which also sees a number of NZ actors nominated) will be presented on 12 March.
