In Australian film news, Gracie Otto is set to screen her Soho House North American winning film Desert Dash at the Toronto International Film Festival. Going international. Shot in Lightening Ridge in New South Wales in July (this year!) the film sees a heroine stuck in a computer game, where Opals act as the currency for survival. How very futuristic and so not your typical rural Australian film. Otto not only directed the film but wrote and starred in it alongside Krew Boylan, Damian Walshe- Howling and Otto’s daughter, Darcey O’Brien who makes her debut. We do love a family affair. To Toronto.
