Kelli Cross announced as Director's Attachment on Rachel Perkin's Jasper Jones

The Bucktin Productions production, which will begin in Perth in September.

The Australian Directors Guild (ADG) and Screen Australia today announced director Kelli Cross as an indigenous feature film attachment for 2015, as part of the Director’s Attachment Scheme, an industry incentive program funded by Screen Australia and managed by the ADG for emerging feature film directors to develop their craft.

Kelli Cross said, “I'm absolutely thrilled and honoured to be attached to Rachel. This is a fantastic opportunity with an experienced director of great sensibility and attention to detail to absorb and learn from."

Cross has directed a number of short drama films and documentaries including “One Fine Day” and “Rainforest Warrior Z” which screened on ABC1. Her films have screened at various festivals such as ImagineNative Film + Media Arts Festival, Flickerfest and Revelation Perth International Film Festival.

The Director’s Attachment Scheme opportunity will be provided to three directors per year. 2013 saw three attachments, Grant Sputore was attached to Kriv Stenders on Kill Me Three Times, Stephen McCallum was attached the Tony Ayres on Cut Snake and Matthew Moore on the Robert Connolly directed film Paper Planes. In 2014 Ariel Martin was attached to Neil Armfield on his feature Holding the Man and Dimitrios Pouliotis was attached to Matt Saville’s latest feature film A Month Of Sundays.

The ADG has also provided several opportunities for directors to be attached to TV Drama Series, with the first attachment on two Playmaker Media series House Husbands (Christopher Stollery attached to Grant Brown) and Love Child (Julietta Boscolo attached to Geoff Bennett). Currently Nora Niasari is attached to Emma Freeman on Matchbox Pictures’ Secret City.
