SHOOTING DOGS WINS TOP HONOURS AT THE HEARTLAND FILM FESTIVAL, INDIANAPOLIS.

Last week, SHOOTING DOGS was awarded the 2006 Grand Prize and $100,000 at The Crystal Heart Awards Gala, the climax of the Heartland Film Festival. The film's writer David Wolstencroft was presented with the award by legendary actor Jon Voight. This is a particularly significant award for the film with the US release now scheduled for early 2007.

The Heartland Film Festival takes place every October in Indianapolis, aiming to recognise and honour filmmakers whose work explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life. This year, the biggest crowd in Festival history gathered to honour those special films that enrich and inspire their audiences.

Although I'm in Canada, I purchased through Amazon UK a PAL region copy of Shooting Dogs. I was able to watch it on a computer at the school where I teach.

I finished the film today and felt emotionally drained. A tremendous and powerful film. I look forward to purchasing a NTSC copy when it is released in 2007.

I have visited Rwanda twice in the last year-and-a-half through my volunteer role as coordinator of the Manitoba Campaign to Ban Landmines. I look forward to future visits.

The film also received the Audience Choice Award for dramatic features at the Heartland Film Festival, later on in the week.

Congratulations - a never more deserved award.

Although I purchased the dvd from Amazon UK, any chance of an Australian release?
