The Captain and The Bookmaker

The Captain and The Bookmaker

Match-fixing taints sporting careers, ruins achievements, and brings down icons. They didn't come much bigger than South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje, whose taking of bribes to fix matches betrayed the trust placed in him by a nation that loved him, his teammates and opponents, and the international cricket community that respected him. This documentary lifts the lid on Cronje’s onfield fraud, prompted by bookmakers whose impact on sport is still felt today.

Chancers: The Great Gangster Film Fraud

Could there be a more fitting closing selection for a fraud film festival than a documentary about fraud in film? Chancers traces a scam aiming to con £2.5m off the British taxman by faking the production of a £20m movie. Caught out, the supposed filmmakers set out to prove their bona fides by making an actual movie, a decision that quickly makes apparent their utter lack of experience in this area.

Tickled

Tickled

What should have been a harmless news story about a weird, amusing tickling video became something quite else for Kiwi journo David Farrier – a trip down a rabbit hole of personal abuse, online bullying, fraudulent secret identities and criminal activity. The filming of Tickled took Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve from Newton, Auckland to New York, New York, and the pic went on to enjoy rave reviews at festivals such as Sundance, and on general release in the US and UK.
