Red Deer film receives two awards at Central Alberta Film Festival (CAFF)

Power on Water takes Audience Choice and award for Best Short Documentary at CAFF awards ceremony Saturday, February 23.

RED DEER, February 26, 2019 – The 2019 Central Alberta Film Festival came to a conclusion Saturday night with a formal awards ceremony celebrating six winning films, with awards for Audience Choice and Best Short Documentary going to Red Deer filmmaker Rueben Tschetter for his film “Power on Water.”
“Of all the films screened at the great Carnival Cinemas facility this week, ‘Power on Water’ was singled out by both the judges and the audience as a superior film,” said Ranjit Mullakady, CAFF President, at an after-party on Saturday held at downtown restaurant Here to Mars. “We couldn’t be happier that a local film gets to be celebrated this way right here in Red Deer.”
“Power on Water” is a short film commissioned by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery that profiles Red Deer’s Tammy Cunnington, world class Paralympic swimmer. Cunnington was six years old when she was struck by an airplane at a Ponoka air show in April 1982, leaving her a paraplegic. “Power on Water” tells the story of Cunnington’s life, her passion, and her focus on getting to the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.

Other films recognized at the CAFF Awards Ceremony, which was sponsored in part by 67th Street Dental and Troubled Monk Brewery, were Prairie Dog for Best Feature Narrative, RISE: The Story of Augustines for Best Feature Documentary, and “The Wall” for Best Short Narrative. Audience Choice awards for CAFF’s Smartphone and 48 Hour Film Challenges were given to “Marionette Man” and “Suzie.” CAFF Action Team volunteers were also recognized at the ceremony by Mullakady, who commented on the importance of teamwork in filmmaking and in life.

Game of Thrones earns 32 Emmy nods

LOS ANGELES — HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has slashed its way to a record-setting 32 Emmy nominations Tuesday for its eighth and final season.

The bloodthirsty saga’s total eclipsed the all-time series record of 27 nods earned by “NYPD Blue” in 1994.

The showing by “Game of Thrones” led HBO back to dominance over Netflix, the streaming service that bumped it last year from its longtime Emmy dominance.

Last year’s best comedy series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” led the pack with 20 bids, including for its star and defending champion Rachel Brosnahan.

“The Masked Singer” judge Ken Jeong and “The Good Place” star D’Arcy Carden announced top-category contenders at the Television Academy in Los Angeles.

The 71st Emmy Awards will air Sept. 22 on Fox, with the host yet to be announced.
