Courtney Dawson, a young up-and-coming filmmaker and journalist from Sydney, is concerned
about these trends and has set out to make a documentary about what is ailing our
industry – aptly called Advance Australian Film. She chatted to me about the project and how she is encouraging audience participation through crowdfunding.

While studying a Bachelor of Media at the University of Adelaide, Anders Wotzke (seen above) discovered he could see free movies if he submitted reviews to the student newspaper, On Dit. From those humble beginnings, he has since branched out and started his own website and brand, CutPrintReview.com. Anders just got back into Adelaide after attending the prestigious Talent Campus at the Berlin International Film Festival as one of the Talent Press. He came into the studio to tell us all about the experience (falling asleep in theatres, overhearing enraged producers, and battling deadlines with jetlag) and we drill him for his opinion on the Australian film industry while we’re at it.
