Nathan FMA Badge Light Runner Small


This year sees the launch of the NATHAN Filmmaker Awards, not only as an opportunity to give back to the filmmakers whose films are voted the best of the best, but also our commitment to fostering the growth of the trail and ultra running film genre.

Through this voting page, you will have the opportunity as audience members to vote for your favourite films, the stories and the visuals that moved you in a way that only film can do.

 

AWARD #1 - Most Innovative Storyteller

As with all successful productions, the film's Director is at the heart and soul of how a story is presented. Their keen eye and well-rounded vision of what their productions should look like, are what sets each Director apart. This award is aimed at rewarding the direction of the film, the story behind the imagery and how the story is brought to life through the film as a whole, including the characters and the location. If the story moved you, in a way that is inexplicable yet it motivates you to want to discover more in your own trail running, then vote for it below.

AWARD #2 - Best Cinematography

Pictures speak a thousand words! This award is aimed at rewarding the visual story of the film and how the film maker/s bring the story to life through their use of innovative film making techniques, breath-taking scenes, clever POV (point of view) and other types of camera angles. It's all in the way they use emotively framed scenes where small nuances are brought to the attention of the audience, scenes that you will take with you on your next run as visual motivation. If the film left you gobsmacked or simply spellbound by the visual showcase experienced then vote for it below.
