9 Australian films we can’t wait to see in 2016! 

Full list by Cinema Australia here !


Jasper Jones


Charlie Bucktin is surprised to see the rebellious aboriginal boy Jasper Jones outside his window late at night asking for his help. Together they walk through the quiet town of Corrigan in Australia into the dense forest where Jasper leads Charlie to a glade. It is here they discover that a terrible crime has happened and the two work together to solve the mystery and make things right in this frightened town whilst uncovering more than just the truth.

Directed by Rachel Perkins

Starring Toni Collette, Levi Miller, Hugo Weaving, Matt Nable, Angourie Rice, Myles Pollard, Dan Wyllie, Aaron L. McGrath, Susan Prior, Wilson Moore, Ferdinand Hoang and Cooper van Grootel

Why we’re excited: Cinema Australia is based in Fremantle, Western Australia. Jasper Jones scribe Craig Silvey is from Fremantle, Western Australia. You can imagine how excited we are to see this critically acclaimed novel come to life on the big screen. It’s brimming with local and national talent too including Matt Nable who gets better with every film. We really hope Hugo doesn’t play Hugo like he does in most films and follows up his outstanding performance in The Dressmaker with another beauty.
