Australian Features 2006

Australian feature and short feature films promoted at key film markets throughout 2006.

In the 2006 catalogue you'll find genre flicks with their own unique spin, experimental works, historical dramas reflecting on Australia's past and serious cinema that delves into the big questions of love, life and death.

As well as the wealth of new talent that has emerged in 2006, a number of Australia's foremost creative teams have returned to the big screen. Acclaimed theatre and film director Neil Armfield has adapted the best-selling novel Candy, with a stellar cast that includes recent Oscar-nominee Heath Ledger, Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush and rising talent Abbie Cornish, last seen in Cate Shortland's award-winning Somersault (2004). From director Ray Lawrence, whose work includes Bliss (screened In Competition at Cannes in 1985) and the multi-award-winning Lantana (2001), comes the drama Jindabyne. The eclectic Paul Goldman has followed up Australian Rules (2001) and The Night We Called it a Day (2002) with Suburban Mayhem. Geoffrey Wright, director of the provocative Romper Stomper (1992) and Metal Skin (1994), returns with Macbeth, a new take on Shakespeare's timeless tale of power and corruption. Ana Kokkinos has followed her controversial 1998 film Head On with another erotically-charged work, The Book of Revelation. And the ever-innovative Rolf de Heer (Dance Me to My Song, The Quiet Room, Bad Boy Bubby) once again pushes cinematic boundaries with a story of Indigenous Australia entitled Ten Canoes.

2005 was a standout year for Australian cinema, with films such as Look Both Ways, Wolf Creek and The Proposition (an Australia/UK co-production) garnering awards and acclaim around the world. The works in this year's catalogue will further enhance the reputation of Australian films on the world stage, as the country's industry enters its fourth decade of sustained cinematic output.
