Keith Hill

Director, Writer

Keith Hill's creative energies spread further than most. The award-winning author and founder of Rattle Records and spiritually-based company Attar Books has contributed to films variously as a cameraman, editor and producer. His CV as a director also ranges widely: from experimental work to drama, to documentary (2012 New Zealand International Film Festival title Persuading the Baby to Float). Hill made his feature debut in 2002, with acclaimed romance This is Not a Love Story. Hill's screenplay won an award at United States festival Dances with Films, and was nominated at the 2003 New Zealand Film Awards. 

... a writer-director-editor of considerable talent, equally strong on camera placement, pacing, language and character detail, all of it suggesting more good things to come. Robert Koehler on Keith Hill, in a Variety review of feature This is Not a Love Story, 28 July 2002
