‘Bottle Money’ Wins in Beverly Hills

Bottle Money, written and directed by Rebekah Tyler (DEGANZ), won the Audience Choice Award for best short film at the 24th Beverly Hills Film Festival (BHFF).

The film stars Rebekah’s son Jack Tyler as 16-year-old Nelson who protects his siblings from the chaos of their unstable mum. He must decide how much longer he can stand to love her.

Rebekah shared with DEGANZ,

They say it’s never too late to follow your dream. I agree, because at 55 I made the decision to study directing at TAP. Two years later, my first short film BOTTLE MONEY was selected for the 24th Beverly Hills Film Festival and it received the Audience Choice Award for best short film. Congratulations to my phenomenal cast and crew, whose talent, hard work and collaboration inspired me as we weathered a four-day storm to make this beautiful film. Never give up the dream!

BHFF was established in 2001 as a cinematic and cultural patron, connecting emerging filmmakers with the community of entrepreneurs and innovators in the cinema industry. In addition to the festival screenings, it hosts a series of panels, workshops, and seminars.

Congratulations Rebekah and the whole Bottle Money team!
