Student film wins award THEY VE done it again. Kaitaia College students have won an award at a national film contest which promotes environmental sustainability. Northern News reported earlier this month that two short films by Film Squad students were among 20 nationwide shortlisted for eight awards at the Outlook for Someday film challenge. The college has since learned that one of the films, Lookout for Someday by Mar- issa Oien, Ana Flood and Jared Oien won the World Wildlife Fund secondary school award. The prize is a five-day introductory film course at South Seas Film and Tele- vision School in Auckland and a gift bag worth more than $200. Teacher Amber Davidson says the students spent most of their weekends during term three scripting, shooting and editing the films. She is impressed they met the deadline for the challenge despite the theft of a video camera and Lookout for Someday director Marissa dislocating her knee three days before shooting. The Outlook for Someday win follows a win at last year s awards when student Charlee Collins was named standout winner for a short film about climate change. Charlee s film was a finalist at the BBC-sponsored Panda Awards, also known as the Green Oscars, last month. New car cures Ann's hip pain Thrilled: Ann Green receives the keys for her new car from Bernie McGinty. Photo: ROBERT BATEMAN/ KAIKOHE NEW WORLD Ann Green was so excited when she won a car at Kai- kohe New World, she forgot about the pain in her hip. The Opua resident was one of 135 New World shoppers nationwide to win a new Suzuki Swift in the supermarket s Great Car Giveaway promotion last week. Ann has been waiting for a hip replacement and was in pain the day she got the call from the supermarket. But the pain vanished when she found out she had won the car. I was so excited, Ann says. I haven t owned a new car in my life, so this is just great. My old car was about to give up the ghost too, so perfect timing. New World Kaikohe owner-operator Bernie McGinty says the store had great fun running the draw which ran from Octo- ber 11 to November 7.
