Screen Australia today announced funding approval for 11 new projects, among the projects is Warp Films’ Snowtown, a true-crime story about a teenager who finds his world threatened by both his loyalty for, and fear of, his newfound friend, John Bunting, Australia’s most notorious serial killer. Snowtown marks the feature film directorial debut of Justin Kurzel, whose short film “Blue Tongue” screened at the 2005 Cannes International Film Festival. The film is written by Shaun Grant and will be produced by Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw. It is the first feature financed by Warp Films Australia, the local offshoot of UK production companies Warp Film and Warp X. Click here for more on the John Bunting case.
