Screen NSW & ABC TV announce

first Documentary Feature Fund film

Kriv Stenders’


The first film to be commissioned under the Screen NSW – ABC TV Arts Documentary Feature Fund has been announced today. Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) has created and will direct Right Here: The Go-Betweens.

Right Here: The Go-Betweens will explore the melodramatic saga behind the rise and fall of one of the most artistically successful and influential Australian bands of the last 40 years.
The Screen NSW – ABC TV Arts Documentary Feature Fund (DFF) is a new three-year joint initiative to fund one new feature length arts documentary each year. The three films will have their world premiere each year at the Sydney Film Festival prior to screening on ABC TV. Right Here: The Go-Betweens will premiere at the 2017 Sydney Film Festival.
Screen Australia is the major investor in the film through its documentary program.
Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said: “We’re delighted to partner with Screen NSW and ABC TV Arts to launch a brand-new Australian documentary focusing on the arts at the Sydney Film Festival. The world premiere of this film about an extraordinary band will undoubtedly be a highlight of our annual June Festival.”
Kriv Stenders has directed music videos throughout his illustrious career, including several for The Go-Betweens.

“This is very much a dream project for me, as The Go-Betweens and their music have been a fundamental part of my life since I was 15 years old. To be able to tell and share their epic story and to have original members onboard with me is a thrill beyond definition,” he said.

Robert Forster said: “Kriv Stenders is an artist in film and I am sure he will tell the story of The Go-Betweens with flair and precision.”

Band member Lindy Morrison said: “It's a story that’s never really been told. I am as excited as any Go-Betweens enthusiast to see the tales that may unfold in this chronicle of our years together.”

Band member Amanda Brown added: "The Go-Betweens - we were the unruly child of art, love and the ties that bind.”
Kriv Stenders is one of Australia’s most successful filmmakers. His new film Red Dog: True Blue, prequel to his smash-hit feature Red Dog, opens in cinemas across Australia on Boxing Day and he will also direct the upcoming television drama series Wake in Fright, the contemporary retelling of the Australian classic. Red Dog earned $22m at the box office, and is the ninth highest grossing Australian feature of all time. The film won Best Director and Best Film at the 2011 IF Awards and the Best Film award at the inaugural 2012 AACTA Awards.

The film will be produced by Joe Weatherstone, with Chris Hilton and David Alrich as executive producers for Essential Media and Entertainment, one of Australia’s leading production companies of drama, factual and documentary programs.
