OA FILM NEWS - our film Pilè won best short film at the 2019 Atom Awards!

At the end of September we discovered that our little film has continued to have a life, being nominated for Best Short Film at the 2019 ATOM Awards. 

Since 1982, the ATOM Awards have been celebrating the best of Australian and New Zealand screen content.  They are the second-longest-running film and media awards in Australia, behind the AFI/AACTA Awards, having been held annually for over thirty-five years. 

And....WE WON!!   

The film literally would not exist without the efforts and contributions of the entire cast and crew, and our cherished supporters, so this recognition of the film belongs to all of them.

And, in additional good news, ATOM want to take Pilè on a national screening tour! The National Screenings Tour comprises of free screenings of recent ATOM Awards films across metropolitan and regional Australia and New Zealand throughout the year. In 2019, they screened at Bunjil Place in Narre Warren, Melbourne, Harmony Square in Dandenong, Macquarie Mall Urban Screen at Liverpool in Sydney, and at various schools across Australia.   

So, Pilè will be delighting many more eyeballs for a while to come.
