Composer Dmitri Golovko has been nominated for "Best Original Score in Film" at the AACTA Awards for his work on "Godless: The Eastfield Exorcism". The nomination recognizes Golovko's talent in crafting a compelling musical backdrop for this gripping story based on true events.

The film has also received two other nominations in the technical craft categories of "Best Sound" (Benni Knop) and "Best Cinematography" (Carl Allison).

Directed by Nick Kozakis, and starring Georgia Eyers, Dan Ewing and Tim Pocock, "Godless: The Eastfield Exorcism" tells the story of Lara, a woman tormented, torn between science and faith. Pushed by her husband to seek treatment from a congregation of zealots, a ruthless exorcist will try to save her soul by putting an innocent woman through hell.

Inspired by true events 'Godless: The Eastfield Exorcism' tells the chilling story of Lara (Georgia Eyers), a young woman tormented by haunting visions of a demonic presence both in her dreams and in her waking life. Desperate for relief, Lara and her husband Ron (Dan Ewing) turn to a pitiless self-proclaimed exorcist named Daniel (Tim Pocock) in search of spiritual healing. But what begins as a hopeful solution quickly descends into a brutal nightmare as the exorcism unleashes unspeakable horrors upon Lara's already fragile psyche.

As Dmitri set out to score the film, he wanted to capture the ominous and chilling atmosphere of an exorcism movie. The early scenes were designed to keep the audience guessing about whether Lara's experiences were truly supernatural or simply the product of her troubled mind. However, as the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the true horrors lay not in the exorcism itself, but in the brutal torture and captivity of an innocent woman by religious zealots. Primarily an orchestral score, Dmitri also tried to capture other unique esoteric sounds. Using a variety of recording techniques, from contact microphones to processing sounds through guitar pedals, he recorded the sounds of bowed and tapped welded metallic objects, bowed acoustic guitars, rubber mallets running across drum skins and more in order to convey the sound of Lara's schizophrenic mind.

In addition to the film score by Dmitri Golovko, the Soundtrack Album boasts a thrilling bonus remix by acclaimed dark electronic artist Tobacco Rat (aka Jake Steele). Drawing inspiration from the score, the Australian based music producer has masterfully crafted a daring new version of Track 14 - Chase In The Woods. The remix seamlessly blends the haunting orchestral elements of the original with Tobacco Rat's signature edgy electronic sound, resulting in an electrifying and unforgettable track.

Independently produced in Melbourne, Australia and shot during the height of Covid lockdowns, 'Godless: The Eastfield Exorcism' has already been getting significant attention overseas.

The US premiere of the film took place at the Overlook Film Festival in the vibrant city of New Orleans with much critical acclaim.

The film was directed by Nick Kozakis with a script by Alexander Angliss-Wilson, and produced by Lauren Simpson, Tim Whiting and Tony Coombs.
