Bin Day’s awards are rolling in

By Kirra Livingstone

BEERWAH-based director, Ryan Butler, has had his short film ‘Bin Day’ nominated for a People’s Choice award at the Best Australian Short Film Competition.
The film is centered around a pacifist wife and lazy husband forced to work together in the face of a zombie apocalypse.
It has created a lot of buzz since its release in June 2023, including winning the Fun is Good Bill Murray Comedic Shorts Award in the US last year.
If the Beerwah director wins the people’s choice prize, he will receive $5000 and bragging rights for the impressive accolade, which attracts short filmmakers to submit their work from across Australia.
Ryan said he was honoured to be nominated.
He added he was proud of all the love ‘Bin Day’ has already received from various film festivals.
“I was stoked,” he said.
“It is a real reflection on the cast and crew of this short film with all the accolades it is receiving, and this festival is a prestigious one, so I’m very excited to be nominated.”
Voting closes on February 18.
