Congratulations Joe Bird

Adelaide Film Fest Debut

We would like to congratulate Year 10 student Joe B. who has a starring role in a new edgy Australian horror film titled ‘Talk to Me’. This film was chosen to be screened at the Adelaide Film Festival Closing Night Gala at Her Majesty’s Theatre, and Joe, along with his friends in the cast and crew, celebrated together on the pre-show red carpet as well as at a post-gala event. Joe’s reflections on the gala screening are, “It was just such a surreal experience, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

In the film Joe plays a pivotal role and gives a genuine and engaging performance, highlighting his range and skill as an actor. In his feature film debut, Joe worked alongside an impressive cast including Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings), Sophie Wilde (You Don’t Know Me) Alexandra Jensen (Amazing Grace, The Letdown) and Zoe Terakes. This locally produced film is the work of twin brothers Danny & Michael Philippou, also known on YouTube as ‘RackaRacka’, and is produced by Causeway Films who are known for the internationally acclaimed film The Babadook.

This impressive horror flick is not for the fainthearted! Audiences were impressed with the clever writing, well developed characters and psychological elements that elevated it beyond mere jump scares, into an Australian Horror classic. The world premiere for ‘Talk to Me’ will be early next year, followed by a cinematic release around Australia.
