One family. One weekend. One hell of a home video. Births Deaths and Marriages is an independent Kiwi feature film written and directed by Bea Joblin and brought to you by the all female creative team of Robin Murphy, Ness Simons and Sophie Lloyd.

Come enjoy a Q&A screening of this slice of life comedy with DEGNZ and Rialto Cinemas as it opens in NZ cinemas. Director Bea Joblin will be present for a half-hour audience Q&A after the film.

“Births, Deaths and Marriages is an assemblage of good ideas, smart choices and some real inventiveness and nous, in the service of a yarn worth telling.” – Stuff.co.nz

 

Tom Eagles

The Directors & Editors Guild of NZ congratulates New Zealand editor Tom Eagles for his Oscar and BAFTA nominations for best editing on Jojo Rabbit.

Eagles is nominated in the same Oscar category as The Irishman, Joker, Parasite and Ford v Ferrari. Other films nominated for the BAFTA are Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, Le Mans ’66 (Ford v Ferrari), Joker and The Irishman. 

An alumnus of DEGNZ’s International Editor Mentorships, Eagles was mentored by award-winning Australian editor Dany Cooper in 2016 after completing Hunt for the Wilderpeople. The mentorship offered genuine insight into creative process and engagement with the industry as a whole, while providing a solid platform upon which the recipient could build an international career.

Jojo Rabbit is nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, and six BAFTAs.
