Oz ‘Kenny’ continues winning ways

Pic wins top honors at Inside Film Awards

Porta-potty comedy “Kenny” continued its winning streak, collecting four awards, including best film, at the Inside Film Awards on Queensland’s Gold Coast Nov. 17.

“Kenny,” the A$1 million ($750,000) pic that also won best feature at the Screen Producers Assn. conference, has grossed $5 million in 14 weeks, making it the highest-grossing domestic pic this year — and it’s still going strong at the B.O.

Inside Film honors also went to aboriginal drama “Ten Canoes,” garnering directing kudos for Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr, actor kudos for Crusoe Kurddal and cinematography for Ian Jones; and Emily Barclay, who trumped Laura Linney (“Jindabyne”) and Abbie Cornish (“Candy”) to take the actress prize for Paul Goldman’s domestic drama “Suburban Mayhem.”

Producer Jan Chapman received a Living Legend award and April Films, headed by Garry Charny and Philippa Bateman, was nameed SPAA independent producer of the year for bringing “Jindabyne” to the screen.

The 9-year-old so-called people’s choice kudos are voted by festgoers and visitors to the Inside Film Web site. They tend not to act as a pointer to the peer-voted the Australian Film Institute Awards, held three weeks later.
