Downriver may have already met its crowd-funding target with punters having pledged just over $40,000, but the film was given a deserving boost recently by Film Victoria.
Grant Scicluna’s mystery drama will share in just over a million dollars funding support through Film Victoria’s Assigned Production Investment program.
Other feature films to share in the funding will be Lynn-Maree Milburn’s and Richard Lowenstein’s Ecco Homo and Sue Brooks’ Looking for Grace.
Five other television programs will also share in the funding.
Downriver is described as being a mystery film in the style of Winter’s Bone, The Boys and the critically acclaimed Top of the Lake.
