Roadshow Films and Good Dog Distribution are thrilled to announce that their new Australian film RED DOG: True Blue will screen in the Sundance Kids section of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
“It is a dream come true for director Kriv Stenders and I to see the film participate at Sundance,” said producer Nelson Woss. “Selection at such a prestigious festival will ensure that RED DOG: True Blue will roam far and wide, just like the real red dog.”
RED DOG: True Blue is an iconic Australian story of family, friendship and adventure, about a young boy and a scrappy one-of-a-kind dog that would grow up to become an Australian legend.
The film had its world premiere on Saturday December 3 in Karratha, WA in front of a captivated crowd of thousands from the local community.
Said Woss, “Audiences in Australia are embracing the new film and I think it may be time to take the “Dog” to America!”
About RED DOG: True Blue
When eleven year old Mick (Levi Miller) is shipped off to his grandfather’s (Bryan Brown) cattle station in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia, he prepares himself for a life of dull hardship, but instead finds myth, adventure, and a friendship with a scrappy, one-of-a-kind dog that will change his life forever.
The creative team behind the original RED DOG film; director Kriv Stenders, producer Nelson Woss and writer Daniel Taplitz all return for the new installment.
RED DOG: True Blue stars Levi Miller, Bryan Brown and a new canine star named Phoenix.
RED DOG: True Blue hits Australian cinemas on Boxing Day this year.
