Shooting Through: Australian Film and the Brain Drain

Storry Walton
Veteran filmmaker Storry Walton sees the rolling diaspora of filmmakers working abroad not as a brain drain but a stimulating asset awaiting development. Our funding structure is now world class, he says, but years of underwriting indifferent movies have created a culture of entitlement to public money which must be overcome. We must fund only the best, and draw on the skills increasingly acquired abroad to engage with the cultural and political flow of the nation.
