EDUARD GEYL stars in Markers, one of the 10 finalist short films in the “Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films,” a major event of the 2015 Sydney Film Festival. Established in 1970, these prestigious awards are presented at SFF’s Closing Night ceremony at the State Theatre on Sunday 14 June.
The two major awards Markers is up for are:
1. The Dendy Live Action Short Award provides a $5,000 cash prize to the best Australian short film. Winners are Academy Award eligible.
2. The Rouben Mamoulian Award provides a $5,000 cash prize to the best Australian short film director.
The entire story rests on Eduard’s performance as a young country boy trying to create something special to mark the passing of his father. Eduard is studying acting at the Sydney Talent Company (Baulkham Hills) and has already played lead roles in various short films over the last few years. Markers will have its world première on 13 June at Event Cinemas (George St, Sydney). “Mark” it on your calendar!
