Emerging Showcases Australian Films

New York based Emerging Films has partnered with Screen Australia to present a quarterly "USA-Australian Film Showcase" series spotlighting films from Down Under that have not been previously released in the US. Screen Australia's Kathleen Drumm and Emerging Pictures' Barry Rebo were motivated by the recent lack of tradition distribution opportunities for Australian films. Beginning next month, Emerging will use its digital cinema network to present the series across 21 states and in up to 60 cities, beginning with "Accidents Happen," "The Waiting City," and "Charlie and Boots."
