Australia hosts Inside Film Awards

Comic Julia Zamira hosts event

GOLD COAST — One way to control potential red carpet congestion and keep the riffraff at bay is to limit driveway entry to only those in limos. That’s precisely what happened at the 9th Inside Film Awards November 16.

The remaining 800 guests were directed into the event at the Royal Pines golf resort via an underground carpark and elevator, generating considerable intrigue and scenes that could have been drawn from “All The President’s Men”.

Filmmaker nominees Tony Ayers, Michael James Rowland and Jo Dyer rubbed shoulders for the second time in a week, after the inaugural Asia Pacific Screen Awards the previous Tuesday.

Thanks to IF’s Golden Globes-style dinner tables and broadcast and host comic Julia Zamira the event retains its buzz, but the pre-dinner drinks on a Gold Coast golf course, far removed from industry hubs Sydney and Melbourne, imbued event with a certain surrealism.
