Screen Australia has announced over $400,000 of Story Development funding for 16 projects including feature films, television and online series. 

Corrie Chen, Kris Wyld, Catriona McKenzie, Imogen Banks and Nicole Coventry are among the 10 NSW-based filmmaker teams which will participate in the next stage of a half-hour drama series development partnership between Create NSW and the ABC.

I was interviewed by ‘We Are Moving Stories’ about my short film Outbreak Generation ahead of our screening at Flickerfest.

On Tuesday evening, four short film-makers were each awarded a $50,000 grant as winners of the global Lexus Short Film Fellowship, the largest cash prize for short film in Australia. 

On the weekend in which the much loved short film festival was meant to take place, we asked some Sydney cinephiles to share their memories to the much loved local film festival.

I made it onto Empire’s Hollywood Hotlist!

Collective Hub has included me in their ‘Top 25 Emerging Talent’ list. Eep!

Ridley Scott is adding two female directors to his team when he shoots “Alien: Covenant” in Australia. It was announced by Screen Australia and the Australian Directors Guild (ADG) that Brooke Goldfinch and Catriona McKenzie were chosen as the director’s attachments for the film and will work with the director for five weeks. 

Tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of four short films directed by the recipients of the 2016 Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship. IF checked in with Brooke Goldfinch earlier this year, as the filmmaker was editing her film, 'Outbreak Generation', about a woman who finds herself the sole carer of an eight-year-old boy in the middle of a global epidemic.

Director Brooke Goldfinch heads up international female filmmaker collective Film Fatales’ Sydney branch. I interviewed Brooke about her work with Film Fatales for a recent feature for Catalogue magazine. Here’s our chat.
