New format for Aacta event

15 September 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (Aacta) is switching the awards luncheon which precedes the awards ceremony to a night-time event.

The aim is to provide a better and bigger platform for the first batch of awards presented, according to Aacta CEO Damian Trewhella.

Actor/presenter Rob Carlton will host the industry dinner at the The Star Event Centre in Sydney on Monday November 30.

Carlton quipped, .I've trained all my life to host a room full of intelligent, slightly drunk but getting drunker, left leaning, creative types... It'll be like Sydney University's Manning Bar in the 90's, or the Judgement Bar of a time that's difficult to pinpoint but I'm sure existed. We should be fine but if it does get out of hand I can always use my shouty/sweary Kerry Packer voice..

The awards ceremony will take place at the same venue on December 9, telecast on »

Digital release for Oz musical comedy after festival premiere

3 May 2015 8:41 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In another piracy-busting move, the creative team behind Super Awesome! plan to launch the musical comedy on iTunes and other VOD platforms on May 29, the same day as the world premiere in Toronto.

Guy Edmonds and Matt Zeremes, who co-wrote and co-directed the mico-budgeted film, play struggling actors who are given one last chance to prove themselves by staging a musical, Honey I.m Homeless.

The theme is marriage equality, a topic about which the naïve, straight guys know next to nothing.

The self-funded $60,000 film will premiere at the 25th Annual Inside Out Toronto Lgbt Film Festival, arranged by the international sales agent, French- based Outplay.

The cast includes Simon Burke (who performs the signature song Man to Man), Patrick Brammall, Rob Carlton, Annie Maynard and New York actor Vinnie Vella, whose credits include Casino, The Sopranos and Coffee and Cigarettes.
