Is the Wellington final time correct?

Just 7pm-10.30pm seems a lot earlier and longer than previously is all :)

Was so much slicker this year. Finished well before 10:30.

A pretty tough final, with a couple of teams unlucky to miss big awards.

'Traces of Nut' and 'Cinema in Decline' were quality films that I expect to see in the national finals.

Finished at 9.30!

I completely agreed with the top 2 - congrats Couch Kumaras and Outcasts!

I hope to see some other films in nationals but I don't think it will be the 2 you alluded to Mike :)

Thanks a lot! We're now up in the Screening Room if anyone cares to check it out and maybe throw up a review if they're feeling reviewer-esque! http://www.48hours.co.nz/screening-room/2015/wellington/sound-sleep/
