ALL FINALISTS FOR BEST TELEVISION FEATURE FROM TV ONE
25 November 2014
TV ONE’s top class lineup of big local stories has produced all five of the finalists in this year’s NZ Film Awards Best Television Feature category, cementing TVNZ’s position as the front-runner for New Zealand content.
The Best Television Feature is a new category, sponsored by NZ On Air, and made possible by an unusually high number of quality television features.
The finalists are:
Consent: The Louise Nicholas Story – Condor Encore
Erebus: Operation Overdue – Rogue Productions
The Kick – Great Southern Television
Field Punishment No 1 – Lippy Pictures
Pirates of the Airwaves – Lippy Pictures
Four out of the five were made with the assistance of NZ On Air’s Platinum Fund.
TVNZ‘s general manager of Commissioning, Andrew Shaw, says it has been an honour to put such an impressive group of productions to air.
“We have had almost an embarrassment of riches over the last couple of years – all of the finalists were top quality, highly professional creative works that left viewers feeling they had watched something really significant. We’re very proud that they are being acknowledged in this way.”
The winner will be announced on December 12.
