Latest News

As a huge fan of Run Lola Run, last night I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to interview Franka Portente about her role in the forthcoming Australian feature Romulus, My Father. Directed by Richard Roxburgh and starring Eric Bana, the film marks the first time that she has worked in Australia and judging by her enthusiasm for the project, it will not be her last. We also chatted about her roles in Blow, The Bourne Indentity and, of course, Run Lola Run.

In a busy weekend I also talked to director Michael James Rowland about his new film Lucky Miles. The interview will appear in a future issue of Filmink magazine. The film will be shown at this years Sydney Film Festival on Wednesday 20th at the State Theatre. Check out www.sydneyfilmfestival.org for details.

Talking of the Sydney Film Festival the line-up has been announced and its fabulous. David Lynch's Inland Empire, Jonathan King's Black Sheep, Scott Walker: 30th Century Man, Timur Berkmambetov's Day Watch and Samuel Jackson starring in Black Snake Moan are just a few of the festival's highlights. Keep posted for regular reports nearer to the festival.
