Safc launches strategy to support Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander filmmakers

9 June 2016 4:13 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

David Gulpilil in Charlie's Country.

The South Australian Film Corporation launched its first Aboriginal Screen Strategy on Wednesday night, with the aim of supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander filmmakers.

The development of the new strategy has been guided by Safc.s Aboriginal Screen Strategy Executive Lee-Ann Buckskin and Safc CEO Annabelle Sheehan..

.The Strategy is designed to grow and support the extraordinary stories and creative voices of the Aboriginal screen sector in this state, and to provide opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in filmmaking through production, professional mentoring and partnerships," Sheehan said.

Buckskin said that the strategy "will help the funded projects reach their potential and provide an opportunity for South Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to share their stories."

Sheehan initiated the Naidoc Week Micro-Documentaries Pilot last year, which funded five micro-documentaries with support from partners National Indigenous Television (Nitv) and the Media Resource Centre. »

Sydney Film Review: ‘Goldstone’

8 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The sun is hot, the motives are cold and the film is blazingly noir as Indigenous detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen) returns for another investigation of Outback moral rot in multi-hyphenate helmer Ivan Sen’s socially conscious, supremely accomplished procedural thriller “Goldstone.” A standalone sequel to his breakthrough “Mystery Road” (which opened the Sydney Film Festival in 2013), the film hopes to repeat its predecessor’s success, making Sydney’s opening-night slot its first stop in what looks to be a long fest life, followed by glowing sales.

Sen’s unique accomplishment with these two films, unequalled in contemporary Aussie cinema, is his daringly idealistic intention and crystal clear success at balancing the demands of contemporary genre filmmaking with, in this case, the ongoing hot-button issues of Aboriginal relations (Sen is himself of mixed Indigenous/European heritage), human trafficking, the human greed behind corporate corruption and cultural destruction.
