Earlier this year DEGNZ members writer/director Fiona McKenzie (pictured during filming) and producer/editor Scott Flyger saw the World Premiere of their short film Peninsula at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Now the film has just won the ‘Let’s Include’ section, which recognises inclusion at the Academy Award-qualifying Bengaluru International Short Film Festival in Bangalore, India! In November, Peninsula will be heading to the Aesthetica Short Film Festival.

Shot on Banks Peninsula over three days, Peninsula follows a father trying to reconnect with his estranged son, leading to unexpected consequences.

We are beyond proud of DEGNZ Board member Steven Chow whose short film Munkie will have its United States premiere at the 20th edition San Diego International Film Festival (14 – 24 October).

Starting out as a thesis short film for his Masters of Arts in Screen Production at The University of Auckland, Munkie is now going global! The film had its world premiere at the ​​Fantasia International Film Festival last month in Montreal, and has been selected for Beyond Fest in Los Angeles.

Written, directed and edited by Steven, the film follows a vengeful daughter whose violent plan of revenge against her domineering “tiger parents” spins out of control.
