Take 3 NZ short film
Roseanne Liang’s short film Take 3 received a special mention in the Generation 14plus competition of the 58th Berlin International Film Festival. The award ceremony was held in the Babylon theatre in Berlin on Friday night. Writer/director Liang was in attendance at the ceremony along with producer Owen Hughes and New Zealand Film Commission short film manager, Juliette Veber.
Take 3 is a short film about three Asian actresses who transcend professional rivalry in one gleeful act of solidarity. The youth jury commented that “the three charismatic actresses and the fresh and wacky approach communicated with great ease by this film inspired us immensely”. Director Liang thanked all the people of New Zealand in her acceptance speech.
“We are thrilled with this award because the Berlinale is one of the top European film festivals and the competition was tough,” said NZFC short film manager Veber. “There were some fantastic short films in the Generation 14plus section. It was such a pleasure to watch Take 3 with the audiences in Berlin. The award was an honour for us.”
New Zealand was well represented at the 58th Berlinale with Take 3, Run, Taua and The Trophy screening in competition of the Generation Kplus and 14plus sections. Take 3, Run and Taua were funded by the short film fund of the NZFC. The Trophy was funded by the Screen Innovation Production Fund with post production funding from the NZFC
