Insight: The Film Business
To coincide with the 66th Sydney Film Festival (SFF), and in keeping with the festival’s strong focus on female filmmakers, our neighbours at The Office Space have turned their spotlight on to the Australian film industry. They've assembled an all-star line up for an intimate evening of discussion, expert perspectives and enlightenment in our cinema:
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. Ward's latest film Palm Beach boasts a 'who’s who' of the Australian film industry and recently had its world premiere at SFF 2019.;
Shannon Murphy is an award-winning theatre director and has directed episodes for some of Australia’s best-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.
