Educating on CLICKVIEW


Daughter is now educating through ClickView on a Tertiary level. If your school and students need a film that educates on and discusses gendered based violence, victim blaming, criminal justice or gender studies, then this film may just be the educational tool you need.

NPG proud of this film, which is slowly making it’s way into education and in turn making a difference to society as it stands today.

Official Selection Queen Palm Film Festival

Daughter is an Official Coronet Selection of the Queen Palm International Film Festival, October 2018 Edition. Although we are not up for any awards or part of the public screening, we are thrilled to have had Daughter selected by the jury.

Daughter & Fan-Force

Daughter and Fan-Force joined forces just over a year ago and thus far it has been a slow start for the film as it finds it's way on this wonderful platform.

With Sarah Jayne's production company NPG moving to Europe in the coming months, the possibilities for a Daughter International Tour are strong as Fan- Force has expanded from Australia to International. Daughter fans can now host screenings of the film in the UK, USA, Germany, Ireland, Canada and New Zealand.

For those unfamiliar with Fan-Force and what the company is all about, it is quite simple. Fan-Force is an online library of films and the fun part is, Fan-Force allows fans to choose the films they want to see and host screenings at a cinema in their local area.

Better yet, it is very exciting and rewarding for independent filmmakers to have this platform, as it can be time consuming and financially difficult to secure and set up a screening for your film. Film festivals can also be costly and there is no guarantee that your film will be chosen to screen, thus no one sees your film and you are left out of pocket and disheartened.

Fan-Force works on a tipping point basis, meaning if the fans don't gather and book, the screening does not go ahead, so no-one is out of pocket. But the aim of the game is to invite your friends, community group, school clubs and family to reach that tipping point and beyond. Fan-Force will help along the way, deal with booking the cinema and give you promotional options if needed.

Daughter expands world wide

At the end of March this year Nexus Production Group expanded Daughter's reach to a world wide audience by making the awareness project available for viewing though their Vimeo on Demand platform. This streaming service allows viewers to watch Daughter when they want and on any device that suits them. 

Since launching through Vimeo on Demand just over a month ago 107 links to Daughter have been sold, in 19 countries world wide including Australia, USA, New Zealand, Norway, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, France and Germany, as it stands on the day of writing this blog. 

Leading the race for sales is the US, which NPG speculate has something to do with Daughter's lead, Katherine Langford, becoming the "hottest thing in Hollywood" after landing the role of Hannah Baker in Netflix's teen drama 13 Reasons Why. Following the US in sales is Australia, Germany and finally the UK who are also embracing Daughter. 

NPG are excited by the surprises that keep springing up from this project, which they are very proud of. 

Surprises aside, in festival news, a big win for Daughter came just over a week ago, when the film received a Silver Remi award at WorldFest Houston under the category of longer short film - dramatic. This screening was also Daughter's American premiere, since the 2016 public premiere in Melbourne.

From St Kilda to France

Bonjour!

Myself and Nexus Production Group's Ivan Malekin will be in Cannes on the last leg of our Honeymoon and it just so happens that we planned to visit Cannes and the famous Cannes Film Festival before heading home. What a way for two film makers to end a honeymoon!

Since we made it into the Cannes Short Film Corner with Zina, our film which was shot earlier on in 2015 before Daughter, we thought we would enter Daughter too- any chance to market two NPG films while across the other side of the world is a win. Festivals were not a big part of my plan for Daughter but some once in a life time opportunities can't be overlooked.

Two days after sending though the application we received word that Daughter was selected. Super exciting!

Now the hard yards will begin. We will have to sell the films, network and get people to watch both Zina and Daughter in the hope that someone sees potential in our work. This is an opportunity that Nexus Production Group are very grateful for, a long time coming too but all worth the wait.

The festival runs during mid May. Ivan and I pick up our passes on May 15th from the venue and from the 16th we have access to the grounds and the opportunity to meet influential people from all over the world and other film makers. If we are super lucky we will have the chance to party with some of them in the evening, share a drink at the bar and attend some black tie parties. My dresses are all ready picked out.  

We are glad we have a couple of friends, another film making duo from Melbourne also attending the festival and they have been before, so we will be representing Melbourne Indie Film.

We have heard from people and actor friends who have been that the experience is unlike anything else and we are sure that this is an opportunity we will take full advantage of and never take for granted. This will be our greatest adventure. 

I look forward to blogging here when I return and of course sharing some pictures of Ivan and I on the famous red carpet. 

Let the adventures begin!
