Our latest production Land Mines - A Love Story was shown in competition at the Hot Docs Documentary Film Festival in Toronto this April. In May the film was released in cinemas around Australia, to great critical acclaim (see the 'media' page). The film will have its European Premiere in competition at the Locarno International Film Festival, in August.

We are now commencing production of our next feature "I Love a Sunburnt Country". This is a major project, which will look at the poetry and the poetic imagination of 'ordinary' people. Filming will take place all over Australia during the next twelve months. As well as making the feature film, we are helping to produce a sophisticated online / interactive website associated with this project. The expected release date is March 2007.
