We’re going to give away our first film for free. Are we crazy? or is it all about audience?
It’s been almost seven years since Apocalypse Films debut feature film, The Independent, hit the cinemas throughout Australia.
“The Independent is a rare gem in the Australian comedy landscape… an endearing and distinctly Australian look at politics with the most endearing protagonist” FilmInk Magazine
Now, we’ve decided to give the film away for free. For all those people who’ve wanted to see The Independent but couldn’t – or didn’t want to pay for the pleasure – the end is nigh. Stay tuned right here for more information.
Apocalypse Films producer Tuuli Forward‘s latest short film, Mensajeiru (The Messenger), recently had its world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
The film, written and directed by Timor-Leste native Francisca Maia, was filmed in Timor in 2013. Shot over a week in the jungle outside Dili, the challenging shoot involved numerous local crew working on a film production for the first time. The Messenger showcases naturalistic cinematography by Max Davis and authentic production design by Melchior Dias Fernandes. Congratulations to Tuuli, Francisca and her team.
