Closer Secures Hive Funding

We are excited to announce that Closer’s latest project I WANT TO DANCE BETTER AT PARTIES has been selected as one of three films chosen to receive HIVE production funding. Director Matthew Bate and Producer Rebecca Summerton will be collaborating with Gideon Obarzanek (former Chunky Move Director) to create a trans-media project that fuses documentary, dance and drama filmmaking. The film will have its World Premiere at the 2013 Adelaide Film Festival.


Life in Movement - Upcoming Cinema Release

Closer's new rights management arm 'Closer-Screens' has teamed up with Antidote Films to release Life in Movement into cinemas in early 2012. 


The film has recently played at the Brisbane Film Festival and earlier this year at the Sydney Opera House. From September through November you can catch Life in Movement in the skies aboard QANTAS international flights.  We were also chuffed to receive the Australian Teachers Of Media award for Best Arts Doc earlier this month.
