To coincide with the 66th Sydney Film Festival (SFF), and in keeping with the festival’s strong focus on female filmmakers, in June we turn the spotlight on the Australian Film Industry. We have an all-star line up assembled:
Rachel Ward is one of Australia’s most respected actors (receiving 2 Golden Globe nominations). Proving to also be a formidable director, her first feature film Beautiful Kate premiered at the 2009 Sydney Film Festival and was nominated for 10 AFI awards. Her 2013 film Accidental Soldier also received a nod for best feature and best director. Her latest film Palm Beach boasts a who’s who of the Australian film industry and will have its world premier when it opens the 2019 SFF.
Shannon Murphy is an award-winning theatre director and has directed episodes for some of Australia’s most loved TV series, including Love Child, Offspring, Sisters, Rake, and SBS mini-series On The Ropes. She has produced two short films, Kharisma and Eaglehawk, and is currently in post-production for her first feature film Babyteeth starring Ben Mendelsohn and Essie Davis.
Alex White is a producer who teamed up with writer/director Mirrah Foulkes and Academy Award nominated actress Jacki Weaver to produce the award-winning short film Florence Has Left The Building. She currently is working on the feature film Babyteeth with director Shannon Murphy.
