Now for something a little different. Just over a year ago, the decision was made to start a new podcast. One that focused on Australian cinema and all that it covered. That show was called The Last New Wave. The aim of this podcast was to take a thorough look at Australian cinema, while also providing a platform for filmmakers to discuss their work.
This ‘retro episode’ is the introductory episode to The Last New Wave, and aims to work as a refresher for those who are new to the show. If you have a look back over the feed, you’ll notice episodes focusing on films like Wake in Fright and The Castle, or interviews with directors such as Bryan Trenchard Smith or Ben Elton. Heading into 2018, we aim to continue to deliver these discussions and explore the wide array of Australian cinema out there in the world. Make sure to check out the first full episode with guest Dwight Hurst, on Lantana here.
Over the next few weeks, expect to see interviews with directors Timothy Spanos, Mike Rubbo and Stephan Elliott, as well as the Best Australian Films of 2017. If there’s an Australian film that you wish to hear more about, don’t hesitate to drop us a line on Facebook or Twitter.
