Cleverman 2 will be premiering at the 64th Sydney Film Festival!
Leading First Nation Australian directors will premiere their new works at the Festival, including Warwick Thornton’s Opening Night film and Official Competition contender We Don’t Need a Map, and Wayne Blair and Leah Purcell’s highly anticipated second series of Cleverman.
“The 64th Sydney Film Festival (7–18 June) in partnership with Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department proudly continues support for First Nation storytelling from Australia and around the world.”
“Throughout the Festival audiences will find examples of outstanding Indigenous cinema, from the red sands of Western Australia to the snowy landscapes of the Arctic Circle. These films promise to surprise, provoke and push boundaries.” “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Sydney Film Festival to showcase these powerful documentaries from the world’s leading Indigenous filmmakers, as well as premiere the innovative work of emerging new talent from around the country,” said Penny Smallacombe, Head of Indigenous at Screen Australia.
