SAFC supported comedy-horror 100 Bloody Acres had its Australian premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival on Saturday 4 August.
Produced by Julie Ryan and Kate Croser from Cyan Films 100 Bloody Acres is the debut feature written by Melbourne’s Cairnes brothers.
After winning numerous awards with their 2010 short Celestial Avenue, Colin and Cameron Cairnes earned top spot in the Slamdance Screenwriting Competition horror category with 100 Bloody Acres. Featuring Damon Herriman (Laid, Love My Way), Angus Sampson (Summer Coda, MIFF 10) and John Jarratt (Wolf Creek, MIFF 05), and produced by Julie Ryan (Red Dog, MIFF 11) and Kate Croser (Danger 5), 100 Bloody Acres is as hysterically funny as it is horrifyingly gruesome.
Shot on location in Adelaide Hills with a majority SA crew, 100 Bloody Acres was the first production to use the SAFC’s new production offices at Adelaide Studios.
