Pure Independent Pictures is dedicated to supporting only purely independent (non government-funded) Australian feature films.
Independent filmmaking is the lifeblood of any film industry and we want to make it easier for independents to compete with the bigger budget foreign and government films. Our aim is to support and attract the very best of Australian filmmaking talent.
Good filmmaking requires creative freedom. The freedom to raise a voice of dissent, humour, love, rage, or passion, unconstrained by bureaucracy and process. We support independent filmmakers whose voices live or die based on their ability to connect with audiences, to move, challenge, or confront cultural norms, rather than conform to the tastes of government officials.
Many of Australia's best films were independent productions - films like Mad Max, Crocodile Dundee, The Castle, and Gabriel. Unfortunately, independent filmmaking has become far too rare
