AUSSIE TV SERIES NOMINATED FOR TWO CROWN AWARDS TO BE HELD IN FLORIDA
Australian TV Series ‘Everytown Downunder’ continues to be recognised on the world stage, receiving two Crown Award nominations for Best Series and Best TV Format at the International Christian Visual Media Conference to be held in Florida, USA later this month.
The documentary series, produced and directed by Pineapple Media Australia’s Richard Attieh, follows Australia’s leading country gospel musician, Steve Grace, on a 25 000km mission road trip around Australia.
Everytown Downunder is also pleased to announce their acceptance of the Official Selection Laurel at the UK Christian Film Festival, the Best Director Award at the International Christian Film Festival, Christian Media Australia Award for Best Film/TV/Documentary and the 2015 Graham Wade Pilgrim Media Prize.
“I am grateful for the recognition Everytown Downunder is receiving in Australia and around the world,” says Attieh. “We are passionate about telling great stories that connect with audiences, and the recognition we are receiving is a bonus.”
“The success we are receiving is as much a testament to Steve Grace and his 25 year ministry as it is to our work,” continues Attieh.
“Steve opened the doors of his ministry to us and I count it a privilege to work with an apostle in our land. Steve has the ability to connect with audiences all over Australia and around the world so I was always confident a TV series that honoured his work would resonate with TV audiences.”
The series is currently screening on the Australian Christian Channel and Shine TV in New Zealand, and is set to screen on UCB TV in the UK as well as the Inspiration Network in the US and around the world later this year. The series will be available on DVD in the second half of 2015.
Richard will be attending the ICVM Conference later this month, looking to connect with TV channels and distributors from the USA, Europe, South Africa and other parts of the world.
“I would like to personally and publicly thank all of the people who worked with me and our production team to make Everytown Downunder a reality,” says Attieh.
“There are thousands of great faith stories about Australia’s past, present and future out there, and I’ll always be looking to tell those stories in a relevant and meaningful way to as many people as I can.”
