Roadshow Films and Good Dog Distribution are proud to announce that RED DOG: True Blue will screen in the 40th edition of Generation at the 67th Berlinale.

“It’s good to see the iconic RED DOG legend continuing to roam far and wide!”
The film has now been accepted into the prestigious Berlin and Sundance Film Festivals, which is highly unusual for an Australian family film.

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.
