FCCA AWARDS 2007 – WINNERS

CRITICS VOTE FOR NOISE
With six awards, Noise was the biggest winner in last week’s Film Critics Circle of Australia awards for films released in 2007 – the first time in years that the FCCA has held its awards after the end of the calendar year.


While Noise won the awards in six categories - Best Film, Director, Actor, Music, Editing and Cinematography – Tony Ayres picked up the award for Best Screenplay and Joan Chen won the Best Actress award for The Home Song Stories. Not surprisingly, the Best Documentary feature award was won by Anna Broinowski’s Forbidden Lie$.

The awards were presented at the Cinema Paris in the Fox Studios precinct, with Foxtel Chief Kim Williams, Animal Logic’s Greg Smith and actress Tina Bursill joining FCCA executives to present awards at the podium.
