South island circumnavigation wins another major award!
Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I just heard that the South island circumnavigation film won another major prize at an international film festival. It won the Thalassa adventure prize at the 8th Montreal Festival of Travel and Adventure.

Here are the comments of the jury;

"On behalf of the entire festival team, we wish to congratulate you for this remarkable film, the jury (and we) found there was a true authenticity to your film and a positive and enthusiastic spirit althrough the film and that we were able to share the emotion with you throughout the adventure".

I was relatively close to the event, being based in Chelsea, Quebec filming for my canoeing DVD, but I was too busy filming at the weekend to attend the event. What a shame, but I'm very happy to have won the prize. That's the 4th first prize that the New Zealand film has won at international film festivals. The other first place prizes are,

Best Adventure Film, Kendal Mountain Film Festival, UK
Best Adventure Film, Reel paddling Film Festival
Best Adventure Film, Waterwalker Film Festival

'South island circumnavigation' is also a finalist at the Graz Mountain Film Festival in Austria from 11-14th November, and was a finalist at the 18th Dijon International Adventure Film Festival in France last week.
If you missed it at the festivals then you can always see this film (and many other good stories!) on 'This is the Sea 4' DVD!

I'll write a blog about my filming in Canada in the next few days, once I get home.
