Screen Australia recently announced $10m worth of production funding. Included in the funded projects is a movie adaptation of Craig Silvey’s Children’s book ‘Runt’.
Set in the country town of Upson Downs, this family feature film tells the story of ten-year-old Annie Shearer and an adopted stray dog called Runt. The film follows Annie and Runt as they try to save their family’s farm from drought and hardship by winning the Agility Course Championship at the Krumpets Dog Show in London.
Production details are not available, however Screen NSW is a supporting agency.
