ASDA AWARDS 2004

RAY LAWRENCE HONOURED
Ray Lawrence (Lantana, Bliss) was awarded this year’s Outstanding Achievement Award by his film director peers at this week’s presentation ceremony, with Peter Weir as ASDA’s (Australian Screen Directors Association) special guest, at the dinner held at the old St Patrick’s College on Manly hill overlooking Sydney harbour.


Three other directors were also awarded: Sue Brooks for Japanese Story, Curtis Levy for his documentaries and Paul Currie, who won the inaugural award for a first feature, for his film One Perfect Day. Presentation speakers were Kim Dalton, CEO Australian Film Commission, Margaret Pomeranz and Bob Connolly.

The dinner was attended by hundreds of film industry practitioners, including directors, producers, writers, lawyers, Government agency and television executives.

The Palm Court Orchestra played during pre-dinner drinks on the terrace overlooking the Harbour, and the awards were handed out by special guest Peter Weir.
