Congratulations to Giorgos Lanthimos and Alps for taking out the $60,000 Sydney Film Prize at last night's Sydney Film Festival Closing Night Gala.
(Insert Greek economy joke here)

Also huge high fives to the other prize winners:
FOXTEL Australian Documentary Prize at Sydney Film Festival 2012 awards $10,000 to Killing Anna, directed & produced by Paul Gallasch
Dendy Award winner for Best Live Action Short @ 2012 SFF is Yardbird, directed by Michael Spiccia and produced by Jessica Mitchell

Rouben Mamoulian Award winner @ 2012 SFF, sponsored by Dendy Cinemas: Mirrah Foulkes, writer & director of Dumpy Goes to the Big Smoke
Yoram Gross Animation Award @ SFF 2012: The Maker, written & directed by Christopher Kezelos, produced by Christine & Christopher Kezelos 
It was my profound pleasure to host last night's awards ceremony. Hearty thanks to the Sydney Film Festival for inviting me to take part, and then gussying me up in Carla Zampatti and Dinosaur Designs so I looked the part!


Now, who else is suffering from post-festival blues today? Let's start the countdown on the 60th Sydney Film Festival!
