Taranaki's entries into the V48 Hours film festival featured among the nominations but have missed out on the list of grand finalists announced yesterday.

Taranaki team Cheeky Kiwis earned three nominations for their horror film Self-Contained Flat – best female director, best cinematography and best editing.

Other Taranaki teams up for nominations include Cut and Paste for best use of prop, 3 Idiots and a Camera for best rising talent and CCK for "sexiest short".

Cheeky Kiwis director Kirsty Richards, who was up for best female director, said the film took on a professional look thanks to the equipment they were using and their talented 19-year-old editor, David Lepper.

"He's really a talent to watch out for," Ms Richards said.

V48 Hours is New Zealand's largest film festival, with close to 1000 teams throughout the country making a film between one and seven minutes long during a weekend last month.

Self-Contained Flat had a simple yet somewhat realistic storyline, Ms Richards said.

"We tried to make it as realistic as possible without going into the corny category."
