I'd like to start with everyone around Australia who has ever contributed to tax revenue because you are all stake holders in this Australian film industry.
Without each of you we'd be back in 1950s and 60s when I was growing up and it was practically impossible to hear an Australian voice or see ourselves up there on the silver screen.

Thank you Gary Foley who starred with Bill Hunter in my first feature Backroads and taught me the truth of black-white history in Australia.
