On Sunday October 19 SONS & mothers screened in competition at Antenna Documentary Film Festival.

Now in its fourth year, Antenna is Australia’s premiere film festival dedicated to documentaries. This year’s program screened the very best documentaries from across the globe, with a program that was both intelligent and diverse. Challenging the conceptions and conventions of the world around us this Festival is passionate about celebrating and supporting established and emerging Australian.

This year saw just five Australian feature-length documentaries in competitions. They were all fine films and we were humbled to be singled out for the award of Best Australian Feature Documentary.

“To say we were shocked is an understatement,” said Producer Louise Pascale. “This festival truly celebrates the best of documentary and for them to award us Best Australian Feature Documentary was mind blowing.”
