Why AFI?

7 12 2007

Watching the AFI awards last night, I couldn’t help but wonder if there were only six films made in Australia last year? The nominees were: “Romulus, My Father”, “The Home Song Stories”, “Clubland”, “Lucky Miles”, “Noise”, “Razzle Dazzle” aaand….. that’s it!

Is it even worth staging a spectacle complete with red carpet parade, not so funny Geoffrey Rush and flown in celebs Cate Blanchett and Sophie Monk (both no doubt fretting about their jets’ harmful CO2 emissions) in the country that makes less than ten films a year?
