After a successful March premiere screening at St Kilda Town Hall, NPG and 4Dverse Hub are bringing Daughter back to St Kilda on Saturday July 23rd.

 

Enjoy a night of thought-provoking discussion, be a part of the audience for this very special night and afterwards have the chance to voice your opinion on the issues raised, by taking part in the Q&A with the film's director/writer, Sarah Jayne.

 

Special guest speakers on the night are writer, journalist and St Kilda Local Wendy Squires and co-founder of Artists in Community International, Anne Riggs. 

 

4Dverse Hub is situated above Vegilicious, so we encourage ordering a healthy warm meal before you head upstairs to the screening. The 4Dverse bar will be open and there will be plenty of time to mingle with a drink in hand afterwards.

Daughter hits eductation goal

June 2016

 

We're exited to announce that Daughter is now for sale online in DVD and steaming formats on The Education Shop, through Australian Teachers of Media, better known as ATOM Victoria.

 

With education distributors being top of the list for NPG's goals when creating Daughter and also the fact that the film is an awareness project to start a discussion on gendered violence and victim blaming, this is a great start for our tough little film from St Kilda.

 

Fresh off the plane from Cannes Film Festival with both Daughter and Zina and now this good news, we couldn't be happier at Nexus HQ.

Daughter & Zina @ Cannes Short Film Corner

April 2016



We're pleased to announce that two of our most recent short films, Daughter and Zina, will both be part of the 2016 Cannes Court Métrage, or Short Film Corner. 

 

The SFC is a tailored-made marketplace for short films full of thousands of filmmakers, distributors, international representatives, financiers, film institutions and more. 

 

It's a terrific networking opportunity right in the heart of the biggest and most important film festival in the world. An opportunity and experience we cannot miss - so we're even more pleased to announce that the NPG team of Ivan Malekin, Sarah Jayne, and Clara Pagone will all be attending Cannes to represent our films along with Daughter co-producer Dinushi Dias. 

 

Woohoo!

 

From May 15th to 22nd Nexus Production Group will be soaking up the sun in the south of France. Cannes, here we come!

Midnight Complete

January 2016



Sometimes we make films just for the fun of it. Take three minutes to check out horror film Midnight - organised in three days, shot in one night, based on a two-sentence reddit horror story.  Be warned though, NSFW:
 


 
Big thanks to a wonderful cast and crew who were up with us until sunrise to capture each atmospheric shot - we hope you agree it was worth it.  Midnight will also screen at Melbourne's longest running short film event West Side Shorts on March 8th so if you want to see the film on the big screen come along for what is always a fun night of networking, drinks, and quality films.

2016 begins with the lauch of the first teaser and the website of a project that is very special to us and took up a majority of our 2015.  Daughter short film and awarness project, a film that deals with gendered violence and victim blaming, and is supported by the Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund and various local organisations, including St Kilda Gatehouse, a not for profit organisation supporting marginalised women in St Kilda.  Have a look: 
 

 

Thanks to the Town Hall Subsidy Scheme, we'll hold the official public premiere at St Kilda Town Hall on March 10th, 2016.  The event will feature guest speakers, Q&A with cast and crew from the film, as well as nibbles and drinks.  Tickets go on sale on Febuary 10th and more details will be released closer to then.

 

We've also lauched the official website for Daughter, containing much more information about the aims of the project, behind the scenes photos, and cast and crew details.  You can check it out here.

 

There will be much more about Daughter in 2016 so stay tuned.
