WHITELEY SCOOPS THE AACTAS

At the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards, Australia's most prestigious screen honours, WHITELEY was nominated for Best Feature Documentary (Sue Clothier, Peta Ayers, James Bogle), and won Best Direction in a Documentary (James Bogle), Best Editing in a Documentary (Lawrie Silvestrin), Best Sound Design in a Documentary (Lawrie Silvestrin, Ric Curtin & John Simpson). Ash Gibson Grieg won the AACTA for Best Original Music Score in a Documentary, and also the recent APRA-AMCOS Screen Music Award for Best Music for a Documentary. This recognition of the film’s high standards of production and documentary storytelling demonstrates its value as a tool in achieving our Impact vision: “Introduce new audiences and generations to the trailblazing career of Australia’s international art superstar, Brett Whiteley”; and “Inspire in audiences a passion for Australian art as something you can make, experience, collect and enjoy”.

The WHITELEY team acknowledges our fellow nominees; we are honoured to be included in a cohort of this calibre.
