AFI 2000: NOMINATIONS

AFI MEMBERS NOMINATE DEBUTS
Four debut feature films are Best Film nominees in this year’s Australian Film Institute Awards: Better Than Sex, Chopper, Bootmen and Looking for Alibrandi – all written, produced and directed by first timers. Chopper received the highest number of nominations across all categories (10), closely followed by Looking for Alibrandi (9) while Better Than Sex and Bootmen both received nominations in eight (8) categories.

"The close competition," says an AFI spokesman, "promises to deliver the most suspenseful Awards ceremony in years."

Other nominees in various categories are: 15 Amore (4), A Wreck, A Tangle (1) Innocence (2), Kick (1), Me, Myself, I (4), My Mother Frank (2), Russian Doll (2), The Magic Pudding (2).

Notably, The Dish, which has just been sneak-previewed around Australia prior to its official release on October 19, has not been entered in the Awards.
