To be part of the official selection of a prestigious festival such as the NYCIFF is already a victory, all fellow filmmakers out there in the world knows it, and then to be nominated for award, its an additional wonderful bless, we are all happy already, if we win, WOW, it will be an unforgettable bless, a humbling reward to all our continuous work, determination and persistence that took to not only complete the film without any government funds nor any financial support, but to bring it this far and share the beautiful LOVE SOCKS story with the world.
“Love Socks” represents the true spirit of independent filmmaking. The film was made by being fuelled only by pure passion for films, funded only by very long hours of continuous work, many amazingly talented people and the support of many big heart businesses that provided their stunningly beautiful locations all around Sydney to support the filmmaker to tell the love socks story.

LOVE SOCKS MOVIE SYNOPSIS
LOVE SOCKS is a heart-warming story about love, family, friends and bodily function anomalies!
It’s a romantic comedy that follows the story of Frederica. As a child she is diagnosed with a phenomenon known as Raynaud’s, which in her case means she will sneeze forever. Frederica discovers her only respite from this affliction is to wear socks to provide warm to her extremely cold feet. The film exposes the heartaches that ensue when she loses her socks and how her insecurities affect and jeopardize her relationships.
Ultimately, LOVE SOCKS is about letting go of our fears, those inner voices holding us back from opportunities and embracing life and happiness.
The film stars a stellar Australian cast, including Michele Mattiuzzi (Home & Away), Shailla Quadra (Dealing With Destiny), Natalie Rose (The Makeover), Khanh Trieu (Fat Pizza), Olga Markovic (Deadly Woman), Amber Gokken (Gabriel), and many more!
Cinematography by Jack Kelly (Other World) and Marc Stimson (LARP), and a beautiful international soundtrack with some of the best voices from Australia & Brazil, including Snez, Sally Street, Daniel Fontes, Mano Tales, DJ Doido and many more!
LOVE SOCKS is the first feature film as a Writer-Producer-Director-Actress for the film creator Shailla Quadra.
LOVE SOCKS is partly based on true events.
