THE winners of the 2022 Peninsula Film Festival have been announced, with The News photographer Yanni Dellaportas making the list.
The festival evolved eleven years ago, beginning at the Rosebud Bazaar, then moving to the Rosebud Village Green and the eventually the Dromana Drive-In.
Nifty Roadshow by Cameralla took out top prize at the Short Film Festival on Saturday night at the Dromana Drive-In.
Second prize went to City of Salt by James Dr Martino, who also walked away with best director, and third prize went to Healing Country by Tracee Hutchison. Best cinematography went to Skin by Jarid Seymour.
Other winners included My Local Hero: Dreamweaver – Jacqui Beddows by Heather Forbes Mckeon and Yanni Dellaportas.
One of the organisers, Anna Bruger, said from 5.30pm when the drive-in opened on March 12, it was full-on to close at around 11.30pm.
There was entertainment with live music, food trucks and people milling around and enjoying themselves.
“The whole area was at capacity, and it was interesting watching people settle in for the night,” she said.
“It was somewhat cool to be outside, so blankets, jumpers and coats came to the fore to watch these films.”
“For us, it was a great beginning to the night’s entertainment. What a great selection of short films. Educational, humorous, dark, documentaries, animation but overall, something for everyone’s tastes.”
