After dual nominations for Best Feature Documentary in the 2011 AACTA Awards earlier this year, it was announced this week that Shut Up Little Man! and Life in Movement have also bagged a number of Craft Awards. Bryan Mason and Sophie Hyde received BEST DIRECTOR nom's for 'Life in Movement' alongside Matthew Bate for 'Shut Up Little Man', which also picked up tickets for Best Sound and Best Editing (Bryan Mason). Congrats on all those who worked on these films with us - and we look forward to the ceremony at the Opera House in January.
Life in Movement takes out the Dioraphte Cinedans Jury Award and the joint audience award at Cinedans Festival in Amsterdam.
The jury said the film was a "dramatic and moving document" and that Liedtke was "a considerable talent who reminds me of the young Pina Bausch". High praise indeed to the wonderful Tanja Liedtke, about whom the film was made.
The Jury award carries 7500 euro prize money, one of the largest for a dance on film festival.
The audience award also went to Life in Movement alongside another documentary.
