Regional pix get coin

World Brief

The New South Wales government is backing pics made outside Sydney with its A$50,000 ($25,560) Regional Filmmaking Fund.

The first grant recipient is “The Man Who Sued God,” now lensing with helmer Mark Joffe (“The Matchmaker”) and Scottish comedian Billy Connolly as a fisherman.

Another initiative sees Oz’s five major distributors agreeing to cut flexible deals with regional cinema operators.
