AFC funds four more low-budget pics

World Brief

The Australian Film Commission has announced funding for four more low-budget pics from its IndiVision program on the eve of the domestic release through Palace Films of its first feature, “The Caterpillar Wish.”

Scribe/helmer Joel Anderson will debut with “Lake Mungo,” a supernatural drama exploring grief, to be produced by Georgie Neville, David Rapsey and John Brawley.

AFC will cover the A$1.4 million ($1 million) budget.

“Black Water” will be co-directored by scribes Andrew Traucki and David Nerlich and produced by Michael Robertson.

The $700,000 pic set in the Outback promises to be “a terrifying tale of survival.”

Two other micro-budget pics by first-timers received finishing funds from the AFC — “All My Friends are Leaving Brisbane” and “Left Ear.”
