DEGNZ member Rebecca Tansley’s latest short film, The Finding, has been selected for the DC Shorts International Film Festival in Washington DC next month. Written and directed by Rebecca, the short film follows a teenager’s efforts to reconnect with her estranged father, forcing them both to confront a dark secret from their past.
The Finding was shot on 16mm film in Central Otago and Dunedin in between lockdowns last year. It is Rebecca’s second short film, following two feature documentaries and a live opera film.
The Finding is one of only 95 short films selected to screen at DC Shorts, the largest short film festival on the East Coast of the US. The festival runs from September 9-19, both in select cinemas and online (US only).
Congratulations to Rebecca and her team!
