The Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) today announced the feature film projects from Australia and New Zealand for this year’s SPAAmart, which runs from 18 to 19 November at the Westin Hotel in Sydney. SPAAmart takes place within the Australian SPAA conference, which takes place 17 – 20 November.
The ten selected projects from Australia and New Zealand were chosen from a larger, more diverse and well-developed field than usual. The projects selected have an eye for an audience and are terrific examples of their genres.
The NZ films making the cut are Two Little Boys, prod. Vicky Pope, dir. Robert Sarkies, writers Robert and Duncan Sarkies; Rocking Horse Road, prod. Angela Littlejohn, writer/dir. Brian Challis; and Summer Rhapsody, prod. Leanne Saunders, writer/dir. Stephen Kang. All three films received NZFC support.
The Aussie flicks rounding out the numbers are Priscilla Cameron’s The Insect King, Galvin Scott’s Darkroom, Sofya Gollan’s Melt, Sandra Sciberras’ Surviving Georgia, Josh Reed’s Hidebound, Tony Ayres’ Geography and Andrew Lawrence’s Sentido.
