Show Me Shorts winners 2017

Show Me Shorts kicked off in Auckland on Saturday night with its grand opening in the very grand Civic, sending Belgium’s Downside Up and NZ’s Fire in Cardboard City a step closer to Oscar glory with their wins of the Best International and NZ Film awards.

Going into the evening Zoe McIntosh’s well-travelled and already award-winning The World in Your Window (pictured, top) led the procession with six nods. Roseanne Liang’s Do No Harm and Becs Arahanga’s Laundry each had four.

Laundry left empty-handed, which seemed more than a little harsh but with 16 titles and 10 awards there was always going to be losers.

While Liang’s Do No Harm (pictured, above) wasn’t up for the Oscar-qualifying top prize, it didn’t much matter as the short has already qualified for the Academy’s consideration. Do No Harm did leave the Show Me Short awards clutching the most silverware, taking the gongs for Best Cinematography, Editing and the Jury Award.

In the ‘no surprise there’ department, Amberley Jo Aumua’s Toronto-selected NZ’s Best winner Waiting took out the Best Student Film category.

Will anybody other than THUNDERLIPS & Candlelit Pictures ever win the Show Me Shorts MV award? No seems to be the answer with the team going four out of four with this year’s win, for Larzranda’s Turtles.

    Hi Keith, interesting that you made no mention of Motel by Lauren Porteous, her first ever film and, up against three funded heavy hitters for Best NZ film. With a total crew, cast and post production of 8 people and no budget surely it deserved a mention. It also won best screenplay. An accidental omission I am sure but a story that would have been encouraging to other fledgling film makers
