FFC-financed feature films, TV drama and documentaries

Recoupment from Australian and international sales, 1996/97–2005/06

The Film Finance Corporation Australia (FFC) tracked the amounts recouped each financial year from projects (feature films, TV drama and documentaries) in which it had invested in previous years. These funds were used each year to support the production of new film and television programs. As of 30 June 2006, the FFC had fully recouped its investment in 10 features.

FFC feature films fully recouped include: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Green Card (Australia/France official co-production), Muriel's Wedding, Napoleon, Rabbit-Proof Fence, Shine, Sirens, Strictly Ballroom, The Wog Boy and Wolf Creek.

The majority of recoupment for FFC-funded features, TV drama and documentaries has been derived from international sales, with an annual average of $12.2 million recouped from international sales and $3.5 million from Australian sales.
