The Nightingale has continued its success with the film set to make its Australian premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival this October.

The production was supported with $250,000 in funding from the Hodgman Liberal Government and injected around $4.5 million into the local economy, in addition to employing more than 70 Tasmanian cast and crew.

Predominately shot in Tasmania, the film showcases our unique heritage and landscapes to the rest of the world, and will add to Tasmania’s growing reputation as a destination of choice for filmmakers.

The announcement comes on the back of the feature film being selected for competition at the prestigious 75th Venice International Film Festival, announced last week.

The Adelaide Film Festival will also feature the world premiere of virtual reality cinematic installation The Waiting Room, from Tasmanians Molly Reynolds and Rolf de Heer.

We are committed to supporting and growing Tasmania’s cultural and creative industries, and these success stories confirm our investment is working.
Elise Archer, Minister for the Arts
