“Today’s young filmmakers don’t think “genre” films are a dirty word. To place any style over another is a meaningless and snobbish attitude. The real art comes not in the genre but in how bold and inspired you can be working within those restrictions. So, I salute all the brave, new, original outsiders who are finding their own voice and way in the current film industry. I salute their talent, their guts and lead the applause in their honour. They inspire me to be better. Karen A Brown’s film is timely and documents the struggle and elation of working totally independently. It is a film that celebrates the outsiders – the bold ones who keep push pushing the barriers and going into uncharted waters in the hope of finding the magic to inspire those that follow.” - Frank Howson Actor/Writer/Director “Flynn“ (1996) Recipient of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award
