Heartland Film Fest Announces Winners
Australian film 'Red Dog' wins $100,000 top prize as Best Narrative Feature
The film's synopsis: "It’s night in the Western Australian outback, a dying dog lies in the backroom of the town's only pub. Slowly, as word spreads, the local community gathers at the pub. Part vigil, part wake, part celebration, they swap stories of Red Dog’s epic life, travels and his rise to fame."
Meanwhile, Crime After Crime won the $25,000 Best Documentary Feature Award, and Thief received the $10,000 Vision Award for Best Short Film.
Here's the trailer for Red Dog:
