2011 Inside Film (IF) Awards for Australian film - winners

Tonight, Inside Film held their 2011 Jameson IF Awards at the Big Top at Luna Park in Sydney, Australia. The big winner of the night was box-office hit Red Dog which took home seven awards. It won for Best Feature Film, Best Director (Kriv Stenders) and Best Actor (Josh Lucas), Best Script (Daniel Taplitz), Best Cinematography, Best Music, and the IF Award for Best Box Office Achievement. Koko, the canine star of the family film, attended the ceremony with the film's producers Nelson Woss and Julie Ryan.

Red Dog had been up against fellow Best Feature Film nominees The Eye of the Storm, Oranges and Sunshine and Face to Face in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories as well. Oranges and Sunshine picked up Best Actress (Emily Watson) as well as Best Production Design. The Eye of the Storm went home empty-handed.

Eyebrows were raised when critically-acclaimed Snowtown was shut out of the acting in its five nominations. It won for Best Editing (Veronika Jenet).

The Jameson IF Awards are the people’s choice awards for Australian films and created in 1999 by IF Media. Votes are tallied from audiences attending one or more of the 20 major film festivals and cinema screenings, and from IF eligible DVD releases.

Last year's IF Awards were dominated by Tomorrow When The War Began.
