The successful group of talented women selected to take part in the new writing and directing initiative is incredibly impressive. The RED project, driven by WA Indigenous production companies PiNK PEPPER and Ramu Productions and Aotearoa (New Zealand) company Brown Sugar Apple Grunt promises to be something inspiring with lasting impact.

The eight powerful, Indigenous female writer directors will soon embark on a development process to create one scripted eighty-minute Indigenous Feature Film exploring the theme of ‘missing Indigenous women’. Each practitioner will write and direct a ten-minute short film, ultimately creating an anthology of stories from a female Aboriginal perspective combined into one feature film.

Screenwest Indigenous Manager, Devina McPherson said, “I’m very proud and incredibly excited to be supporting such a unique initiative. RED will explore ground-breaking Western Australian stories from eight strong female Indigenous perspectives, giving them a united voice that will be heard around the world. It’s truly going to be something special and to be produced in this format by three incredible Indigenous production companies is a first in Australia.”
