Dunedin International Film Festival

Hilary Swain, executive director of Archbold Biological Station and film producer, talks about the making of Cowboys & Scientists during the Dunedin International Film Festival

The inaugural Dunedin International Film Festival was held in a variety of venues surrounding Main Street Main Street in downtown Dunedin in January. Featuring
over 170 films, the festival kicked off that Friday night with Scottish music and the award-winning feature film, Virgin Blacktop.

The festival appealed to all ages from kids animation and skateboard short films to the
stunning environmental documentary Mission Blue which follows renowned National
Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Sylvia Earle and her campaign to create a global
network of protected marine sanctuaries.

The recently renovated Fenway Hotel was the stage for the red carpet and gala awards
ceremony Sunday night where Cowboys & Scientists, set on a 10,000-acre working
cattle ranch in South Florida, won Best Documentary and Best Cinematography
categories.

Over 30 categories included Sustainability, Sci-fi, Comedy, Wearable Art, Technology and Horror.
