#CINEMAFORTHESENSES
Byron Bay Film Festival 6 – 15 October 2017

The 11th Annual Byron Bay International Film Festival

Award Winners 2017

 


The Australian-made drama One Less God  took the Best Film Award at the 11th Byron Bay Film Festival Closing Gala on Saturday night.

Telling the personal stories of Taj Mahal Palace hotel guests and staff caught up in the terrorist attack in 2008 – and of two of the Islamist attackers – the film held capacity audiences spellbound during two screenings at the festival.

Director, co-producer and writer, Central Coast-based Lliam Worthington, who is taking the film to Mumbai this week, noted the “incredible value” of such an award on the international scene. 
 
Co-producer Maren Smith said: “The packed houses and the audience buzz at Byron really bodes well for our upcoming theatrical release, so we can’t wait to share it with a wide audience.”
 
The film, though gruelling, had been an “absolute hit” with audiences, “sparking debate, passionate commentary and heartfelt appreciation”, said Festival Director J’aimee Skippon-Volke.
