Psychological thriller One Eyed Girl and sci-fi comedy The Infinite Man are vying for the best feature film honours in this year’s South Australian Screen Awards.
One Eyed Girl, which has already won the Dark Matters best-picture award at the Austin Film Festival, sees a young psychiatrist drawn into a cult after one of his patients dies.
Directed by Nick Matthews, it features South Australian rising star Tilda Cobham-Hervey, who also starred in 52 Tuesdays, winner of best feature in last year’s SASAs.
Director Hugh Sullivan’s debut feature, The Infinite Man, was filmed in the SA outback and has also been well received nationally and internationally for its story of a scientist who tries to use time travel to woo his girlfriend.
There are 17 categories in the SASAs, which offer almost $40,000 in prize money and seek to promote new and emerging talent in the South Australian film industry.
Other nominees announced today include the post-apocalyptic drama Wastelander Panda and “freegan”/dumpster-diving doco Dumpster Delish (both web series), SBS Comedy Runway winner Ted and Johnny in the Hagemashi Account, and the documentary Bobby Brown Homelands, which explores the legacy of British nuclear testing in outback South Australia.
The winners will be announced at a gala awards night at the Mercury Cinema on May 15.
