Nimbin on film

Nimbin residents managed to grab the top three prizes in the Nimbin Youth Film Comp 2011 which was open to all areas.

The overall winner of the competition was Sam Graves with his film Family Ties.

Second was Matt Miller with Man vs Nimbin (a parody of the Bear Grylls TV show).

Third prize winner was Zebity Fogaty whose Ghost impressed the judges with a beautiful blending of images and music.

Other prizes went to Karinya Oldfield (Best Production Values), Mahto von Schillpe (Best Documentary), Darian Robinson (Encouragement Award) and Tyronne Dunwoodie received Best Screen Presence for his production Train Station Hip-Hop Dance.

Judge Jeni Kendall said she was "very impressed with the wealth of creativity and talent shown by local youth and the depth of the issues explored in the finalists' films."

Congratulations filmmakers.
