Alliance to boost talent, producers on both sides

SYDNEY — The Australia-China Screen Alliance, which aims to help both countries set up co-productions with each other more easily, launched at the Australian Intl. Movie Convention on Tuesday.

It’s the brainchild of producer Mario Andreacchio, who has worked extensively in the region, and the Screen Producers Assn. of Australia.

“ACSA will also serve as a meeting place and project exchange between writers and producers, directors, crew and financiers,” Andreacchio said.

Move comes as Vietnamese-born Aussie helmer Pauline Chan’s “33 Postcards,” the second Australia-China co-production, goes out on 8,000 screens in China, the largest opening for an Aussie film in the country.

Pic, starring Guy Pearce, world preemed at the Sydney Film Festival in June, attended by a Chinese delegation headed by Zhejiang Hengdian Film Prods. topper Liu Zhijiang.

Pic is a Titan View (in Australia)-Zhejiang Hengdian release of a Portal Pictures and Zhejiang Film production.

It centers on a Chinese orphan who arrives in Sydney to discover her Aussie sponsor is doing time for murder.
