The hit comedy Kenny tonight took home four Inside Film Awards, includingbest film and best script, while Ten Canoes and Suburban Mayhem took home three each.

Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature to be made entirely inthe indigenous language, earned Rolf de Heer and Peter Djigirr best director,and Crusoe Kurddal best actor, while Suburban Mayhem's key award was for young Sydney-based New ZealanderEmily Barclay.

Most of the IF Awards arevoted for by the general public, predominantly using the internet. This is theeighth time they have been held but the first time they have been outsideSydney. Enticed north by the Queensland Government, they took place on the GoldCoast, on the night of the last day of the annual conference of the ScreenProducers Association of Australia (SPAA).

The producer of The Piano and Lantana, Jan Chapman, won the living legend award, Tropfest won the festival ofthe year award, and the prize for best unproduced script went to Julius Averyfor End of Town. The SPAA Award forproducer of the year was also announced during the IF Awards and it went toApril Films, which produced and financed Jindabyne.

But the night belonged to Kenny, not just because it won best film for producersClayton Jacobson and Rohan Timlock but also because it won the award for themost ticket sales this year. It was made for less than $1m and, in its 14thweek in cinemas, has sold $7m worth of tickets.

Jacobson also directed Kenny and wrote the script with his brother ShaneJacobson, who played the title role. The documentary-style film, distributed by Madman, isabout an ordinary man who works for a company that provides toilets for events.

The AFI Awards, Australia'slongest running awards, are being presented in Melbourne next month.
