New award for FIDA footy film

Road To The Grand Final, the short film about Williamstown Seagulls FIDA team’s 2014 premiership, has won a third award.

In August the moving documentary won Best Australian Short Film at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

The theme for the competition was equality: reflecting the overall theme of the festival, and IFFM’s desire for a more inclusive cinema.

Earlier this year the short film, made by Mark Hellinger and Jesse Maskell, won the  People’s Choice and Cultural Diversity awards  at  The Setting Sun Short Film Festival in Yarraville, Melbourne.
