Hannah Marshall

Australian actress Hannah Marshall (Packed to the Rafters) has won the Best Actress Award at the Inaugural Niagara Integrated Film Festival for her role in the time travel comedy feature film The Infinite Man. The film also screens tomorrow at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and will have its Australian Premiere at the 2014 Melbourne International Film Festival before releasing in Australian cinemas in September.

NIFF, founded by Bill Marshall (Founder and Chair Emeritus of the Toronto International Film Festival – TIFF), pairs premiere festival films with the premiere hospitality of the Niagara Wine Region. The festival screening, a special event with a paired three-course dinner and featuring local wines, was the Canadian Premiere of the film and Hannah was in attendance to accept the award. In a coup for Australia, the Best Actor award was won by Geoffrey Rush for his role in The Best Offer.

This is the fourth major North American screen of the film, following the recent New York premiere screening at Brooklyn’s rooftop cinema, a screening at the Newport Beach Film Festival and the World Premiere at South by Southwest earlier this year, which generated much critical acclaim, and saw the film make the time.com list of ‘ten films that made SXSW spectacular this year’, alongside Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel, and Jon Favreau’s Chef.

Hannah Marshall is best known for her role as Loretta Schembri in Packed to the Rafters, for which she received a Logie nomination for Most Popular New Female Talent (2011).

Starring Josh McConville (The Turning), Hannah Marshall and Alex Dimitriades, The Infinite Man is a time travel comedy-romance about Dean (Josh McConville), a man whose attempts to construct the perfect romantic weekend backfire when he traps his lover Lana (Hannah Marshall) in an infinite loop.

The Infinite Man is the feature film debut for writer/director Hugh Sullivan and is produced by Kate Croser (Danger 5, My Tehran for Sale) and Sandy Cameron, executive produced by Jonathan Page and Cameron Rogers. DOP is Marden Dean (Fell).

The Infinite Man was produced by Hedone Productions in association with Bonsai Films, with investment from the South Australia Film Corporation (SAFC) through their FilmLab funding initiative, and development assistance from Screen Australia.

FilmLab is a $4.2million development initiative of the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC), funded by the South Australian government. Designed to develop filmmakers who have a track record in short form to take the next step into long form film production, the initiative was also built to find unique new voices in Australian cinema.

 

The Infinite Man will be released in Australian cinemas in September 2014 by Infinite Releasing with international sales handled by Shoreline Entertainment.
