The lovely documentary film â€œOf Shark and Manâ€ has received nominations for awards in three categories at the Nice International Film Festival in Nice, France, which takes place between the 7th and 14th of May. TheÂ nominations are in the following categories:
- Best Cinematography in a Documentary
- Best Editing of a Documentary
- Best Sound Design
Five years in the making, â€œOf Shark and Man,â€ is the feature debut of UK-based film-maker DavidÂ Diley, and tells the inspirational, untold story of Shark Reef in Fiji, a place where locals live side byÂ side with sharks in a world where, far from the villain portrayed in western media, sharks have builtÂ an economy of their own and brought a once-dead reef back to life.
This incredible story is told through the eyes of the film-maker, an ordinary, 32-year-old fromÂ the UK’s industrial north who risked everything to fulfill a lifelong dream,Â one which finds him inÂ the middle of a feeding frenzy with a hundred of the world’s biggest bull sharks. â€œOf Shark and Manâ€Â has been described as having, â€œsome of the most brilliant nose-to-nose shark cinematography everÂ filmed.â€
David Diley, the film-maker behind â€œOf Shark and Manâ€ said:
â€œThis is an incredibly exciting acknowledgement of all the hard work that went in to theÂ making of this film, not just from myself, but from all the people who contributed to helpingÂ makeÂ â€œOf Shark and Manâ€ what it is. When I started the submissions process to the festivalÂ circuit, this is the event I most wanted to accept the film, so to not only be accepted, but toÂ receive nominations in three categories, is a huge honor.â€
This announcement coincides with the weekly releases of six â€œmaking ofâ€ films which started onÂ Monday, March 14th with â€œOrigins,â€ and continued on Monday March 21st with the release of â€œGettingÂ The Look.â€ These films can be viewed at the official movie website, www.ofsharkandman.com
