Australian short film Tragic Enough has won Golden World Award for Best Producer and World Awards of Merit for Best Ensemble of Cast at the World Film Awards.

Tragic Enough, shot in North Sydney and written by Yiwen Liu and directed by Kent Fry, raises awareness of inter-cultural domestic violence.

It was the first film produced by producer and actress Tsu Shan from Wise Goat Productions, who also played the lead role.

“I am so grateful for this opportunity that celebrates Australian creative talent and stories in the international marketplace. To win two awards at the World Film Awards is incredible. I really believe in telling stories about issues that matter and that all voices should be heard. The World Film Awards have assisted in fostering strategic relationships with other aligned creatives both in Australia and abroad and taken Tragic Enough to an international audience,” said Shan.

Next up for Shan is a soon-to-be-announced TV series and a $1.1 million feature film, The Gist of It.

The World Film Awards, held each year in Jakarta, Indonesia, celebrate filmmakers from all over the globe, in shorts, features and documentary.
