‘What We Do In The Shadows’ Wins Top Prize at Leeds International Film Festival

Kiwi horror-comedy-mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows has scooped the top prize at the Leeds International Film Festival after fan voting sent it soaring to the top of the film pile.

As fans and attendees to the film festival voted on which film was the most enjoyable to see, What We Do In The Shadows, which follows a documentary crew following around a group of lazy, centuries-old vampires as they begin to adjust to modern 21st century life and all it entails, shot to the top of the leaderboard, trumping films such as the impressive, Benedict Cumberbatch-starring, Alan Turing biopic, The Imitation Game, Spanish horror The House At The End of Time, and the closing film Birdman.

Congratulations to the team behind What We Do In The Shadows — namely writer-producers Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement — for producing a film that is no bark, and all bite…
