Filmmaker Kristina Robbins-Higgins wins Audi A3
Auburn Hills, Michigan – The film “Life As You Know It” won top honours for filmmaker Kristina Robbins-Higgins in the “Step Ahead With Audi A3: Personal Journeys with AFI FEST Filmmakers” competition late last week. At a special celebration in Hollywood, Robbins-Higgins received US$10,000 and a 2006 Audi A3.
Robbins-Higgins was one of three filmmakers competing for the prize, with 15-minute films documenting three-week journeys across the U.S. and sponsored by Audi. Her film also won the popular vote in an online People’s Choice on Audi’s U.S. Web site. The three filmmakers were selected from a group of artists whose films were screened in competition at AFI FEST 2004, one of North America’s most influential film festivals. All three films can be viewed through November at.
