Doc earns international love

A Kelowna film production company is off to the Oscars of the automotive film and television industry in London next month.

Plia Film Productions’ The Curators is one of five finalists for the best documentary short at the International Motor Film Awards, which will be held Sept. 6 in the England capital.

The 13-minute documentary is a collaboration between Plia and Motor Werke, a high-performance auto repair centre. Motor Werke owner Chris Germana is the documentary’s executive producer, while Plia’s Stefan Matis is the filmmaker who put it all together.

“This is a film that you don’t have to be a car lover to appreciate it,” Matis said. “I’ve had people say, ‘I’m not a car person, but I actually was profoundly affected by that film’ or they learned something new. In a time where cars are becoming more detached and more emotionless, it’s a great commentary on nostalgia and culture. You don’t have to be a car lover to appreciate it. There’s something for everybody.”
