Student horror film

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:23 pm on 17 October 2013

A film that started as the major project for a Diploma in Screen Production at the Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawkes Bay, has just screened at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival. Mathew Watkin's film "Divide" is one of only seven from around the world to gain entry in the foreign film category. It's the only one from New Zealand at the festival. Friends, family and even tutors from the Eastern Institute of Technology pitched in to raise the money for Mathew, who's just 21 years old, to take his film to America.
