It's 'Father's' day at Dinard

9 October 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

DINARD, France -- In My Father's Den, directed by New Zealander Brad McGann, swept the board at the Dinard Festival of British Film on Saturday, taking the Golden Hitchcock award for best film, the best cinematography prize and the audience award. The movie stars Matthew MacFadyen as a war reporter who returns to his native New Zealand after his father's death and befriends a 16-year-old girl, only to find himself the key suspect when she disappears. The film qualified for inclusion at Dinard because it has a U.K. co-producer, Dixie Linder. A new award for best screenplay among the six movies in competition went to Festival, an ensemble comedy set during the Edinburgh comedy fest written and directed by Annie Griffin. As with McGann's picture, it was her first feature film as director. »

Casting director Rowan closes business

23 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Top New Zealand casting director Di Rowan has abruptly closed her business after more than 20 years of casting such films as The Piano, Whale Rider, In My Father's Den and Perfect Creature. "An unpaid debt makes it financially very difficult to continue," Di Rowan said in an interview. "One very bad experience has made it very difficult to run my business the way I have been and to continue doing what I love doing. I don't think it will have any effect on the industry as a whole, I certainly hope not." Rowan discoveries like Anna Paquin, who won an Oscar for The Piano, and Keisha Castle-Hughes, who was Oscar-nominated for Whale Rider, have been pivotal to the New Zealand film industry's unprecedented profile in recent years. »
