ADVERTISEMENT

Chief Stew Mish Marchio of M/Y Fortunate Sun swept the 5th annual Fort Yachtie-da International Film Festival, winning four of the eight honors at an event in Ft. Lauderdale in November.

Marchio took Madonna’s iconic song of the 1980s “Material Girl” and rewrote the lyrics for her “Interior Girl” film. Recruiting fellow crew members, she directed the performance that showed life as interior crew on a megayacht.

The four-minute film won for best comedy, best original screenplay, best female actor and best overall production.

Capt. Greg Chivers of M/Y Carl Linne took home two Oscars (the oscar fish trophies created special for the event), one for best male actor with his film “Carl Linne in the Sea of Cortez,” and one for best production quality with “Operation Crossroads.”

Capt. Chance Strickland of M/Y Steadfast won best action film for “Alaska 2012” and Philip Du Toit of M/Y Remember When won the yachtie lifestyle category with “Remember When”.
The event is organized, managed and produced by CrewUnlimited, with voting from industry and crew.
