Oz’s Film Finance owes 4 filmmakers

World Brief

The coffers of Aussie government funder the Film Finance Corp. were empty at its Thursday meeting, the last of the financial year, so it issued letters-of-intent to four projects, including John Malkovich starrer “Disgrace.”

To be directed by Steve Jacobs, pic will be distributed locally by Dendy and internationally by Fortissimo.

The other projects are: Adam Elliot’s claymation feature “Mary & Max,” which Dendy will distribute and Elliot’s collaborator Melanie Coombs will produce; newby helmer Elissa Down’s coming-of-age tale “The Black Balloon” from “Strictly Ballroom” producer Tristram Miall, to be distributed by Icon; and “The Kingdom,” the directorial debut of Fin Edquist with producer Michelle Armstrong and exec producer Sue Maslin.
