AiF #Breakthrough & #Orry-Kelly recipient #JoelEdgerton to #star and #executive #produce #DarkMatter for @appletvplus and @sptv

Hailed as one of the best #sci-fi #novels of the #decade, Dark Matter is a story about the road not taken. The #series will follow Jason Dessen, (played by Edgerton) a #physicist, #professor, and family man who – one night while walking home on the streets of #Chicago – is #abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to #nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the multiverse of lives he could have lived. In this #labyrinth of mind-bending realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Congrats @joeledgerton

#UNTAPPED2022, the #Hollywood #breakthrough program for #undiscovered and #historically #excluded #Australian #writers and #directors kicks off this week with a #masterclass from #award #winning @martacunningham moderated by the outstanding @jubclerc

what’s it all about? #read below.

Knowing Your Why as an Artist
A conversation with filmmaker Marta Cunningham, moderated by Jub Clerc

In this session, award winning Hollywood director #MartaCunningham discusses with WA filmmaker #JubClerc the importance of striking a balance and navigating the industry with authenticity and integrity. How do artists and storytellers from historically excluded communities keep themselves feeling safe and fulfilled in their creative work in an industry that doesn’t always reflect their values?

JOIN our online Global Coffee industry session this week to discover how the Executive Producer and Creator of #Troppo brought #CandiceFox's novel to the screen.

#exective #producer Simonne Overend established #GatewayLA #script #development competition when she joined AiF as President. The winner of the inaugural competition was Yolanda Ramke with her script Cargo.

Fast forward seven years, Simonne and Yolanda have teamed up to #create, #showrun #executive #produce and #direct TROPPO which premieres tonight on @abctv in #Australia.

Starring Thomas Jane (Hung, The Expanse) and Nicole Chamoun (Safe Harbour), Troppo is set in the #tropical crocodile-infested a#wilderness of Far North Queensland, this steamy-noir series follows an eccentric Private Investigator and Ted (Jayne) as they try to uncover the whereabouts of a missing Korean family man and tech pioneer. As they begin to unravel a string of bizarre deaths, their partnership that once seemed doomed to fail will see them thrust into a mutual fight for survival and sanity!

Check it out tonight and catch Simonne and Yolanda at AiF’s online Global Coffee industry session this week.

Join AiF’s community of international screen professionals and support our stories being told around the world.

Congrats Simonne and Yolanda! We will be watching
