Direct Selection from Melbourne WebFest

Direct Selection from
Melbourne WebFest

It’s our great pleasure to announce that the winner of our Direct Selection award at Melbourne WebFest is (drum roll, please…) Last Breath.

Melbourne WebFest is a participating festival in the Web Series World Cup.

The series is inspired by the stories of Australian women executed or imprisoned for life for murder. Set in a grim waiting cell, each episode takes place in the moments before the convicted murderer is taken to the gallows or to court for sentencing.

Each episode of Last Breath was written and performed by a member of Melbourne’s Girls Act Good (GAG), an all-female ensemble.

Last Breath plays at #NZWF19 in the International Narrative category. It joins our previously-announced selections from partner festivals at #NZWF19:

Melbourne WebFest will select a NZ show from #NZWF19 for its next edition.
