Moa awards, 2012

In 2012 the annual Screen Awards dropped their film categories. The Sorta Unofficial Screen Awards ceremony, known as the Moas, was hastily organised to fill the gap. This photo shows the cast and crew of the Samoan-language feature film The orator, which took the awards for best film, best director, best actor, best actress, best supporting actress, best screenplay, best costume design and best sound.
