Toronto director in Australia

Noah Cowan, Co-director of the Toronto International Film Festival visited Australia for the first time since his appointment, courtesy of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Cultural Attachment Scheme. The AFC Marketing branch worked with DFAT and organised his itinerary to three cities - Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney from 5-15 March 2006.

It was the first time a Toronto representative has been to Australia in three years and it is hoped that Noah will return, on an annual or bi-annual basis.

Noah met with filmmakers who had previously screened in Toronto; Australian distributors; state agencies; industry bodies; and filmmakers with upcoming films.

Toronto is a key North American festival and Australian films have traditionally been strong in gaining selection into one of the festival's categories.

Entries for the 2006 festival are now open - for further information please go to the international festival profiles section of the AFC website.
