The Director

Australia, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Patrick Hughes

With the film industry dominated by commercialism, the art of cinema seems doomed forever. But Jack's a director on a mission. Just pray to God his next location isn't near you. The heist film is given a new spin in this energetic, multi-award winning comedy by VCA graduate Patrick Hughes. The feature version of The Director is just around the corner.
