1% is heading to TIFF – Here’s your first look at Matt Nable’s new bikie film

by Matthew Eeles

1% has been selected to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Discover program which showcases the work of emerging filmmakers. It will join feature films Breath, The Butterfly Tree, Sweet Country and documentary Cocaine Prison on the prestigious lineup.

1% was filmed in Western Australia with the support of ScreenWest’s West Coast Visions funding. The new bikie drama was written by Australian actor Matt Nable and marked the feature film debut of its young director, Stephen McCallum.

“I’m thrilled that 1% will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival,” said McCallum. “It’s a dream come true to share this visceral Australian story of loyalty, brotherhood and betrayal at such a prestigious event.”

The crime drama stars Nable and as the vice president of an outlaw motorcycle gang who must betray his president to save his brother, resulting in civil war. The film also stars Eddie Baroo, Ryan Corr, Abbey Lee, Simone Kessell, Josh McConville, Aaron Pedersen and Jacqui Williams.

1% is expected in Australian cinemas mid 2018.
