London-based Bankside Films has acquired Australian filmmaker Goran Stolevski’s Of An Age for worldwide sales, his second feature following buzzy Sundance premiere You Won’t Be Alone, and released a first-look image.
Of An Age is written and directed by Stolevski, and set in Melbourne, Australia in 1999. A 17-year-old Serbian immigrant named Kol is preparing for the finals of an Australian dance contest when he receives a distressed call from his dance partner Ebony, who has woken up on a beach in an unfamiliar town after a big night out. Kol sets out to rescue Ebony with the help of Ebony’s older brother Adam. On their journey, an unexpected and powerful romance blossoms between Kol and Adam.
The feature shot entirely in Melbourne, with a cast including Elias Anton, Thom Green and Hattie Hook, and is currently in post-production.
It is produced by Australian outfit Causeway Films’ Kristina Ceyton and Sam Jennings, the team behind The Babadook, The Nightingale and Stolevski’s debut You Won’t Be Alone. Executive producers are Bankside Films’ Stephen Kelliher, Head Gear Films’ Phil Hunt, Compton Ross, Bryce Menzies, Michelle Pearce and Dale Roberts, with financing from Screen Australia, Film Victoria, the Melbourne International Film Festival Premiere Fund, Kojo Studios and Head Gear Films.
Bankside Films will be introducing the film to buyers at the forthcoming European Film Market and will be showing a promo.
