Possum is screening in Melbourne next week and we’re pretty happy about it. There are only tickets available for the Tuesday screening now, so better be quick. You can buy them here.

We’re also very pleased to be a part of the 2017 Accelerator Lab. Dave Whitehead will be heading there with an amazingly talented bunch of filmmakers Zoe McIntosh, Rachel Ross, Rachel House, Briar Grace Smith, Jessica Sanderson, and Kath Akuhata Brown.

Big thanks to the New Zealand Film Commission for helping us get over there and for the awesome crew at MIFF, Accelerator Labs and MIFF 37°South for setting up such an awesome program. See you there!



Part of the MIFF 37°South Market suite of industry programs, Accelerator Lab is an intensive workshop that helps selected short filmmakers hone their skills, craft and contacts in preparation for their transition to feature-length film directing with a four-day program of talks, screenings, seminars, networking and discussions on the creative and business aspects of the film industry. Over its 14 years, Accelerator Lab has fostered some extraordinary talent including: David Michod (Animal Kingdom); Matthew Bate (Shut Up Little Man, An Audio Misadventure); Sophie Hyde (52 Tuesdays); Justin Kurzel (Snowtown); Ben Young (Hounds of Love); and Taika Waititi(What We Do In The Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok).
