WILD THINGS the feature documentary recently had its World Premiere at Cinefest Oz in WA.
Here are some vox pops from our audience.
Now the big challenge in the time of COVID19 is to get the film out to as many people as possible.
To help make this happen we are launching a Crowdfunding Campaign on POZIBLE from 20 September-20 October. We want to raise $35k to cover the costs of our Social Impact Strategy, creating inspirational curriculum materials and getting the film out to as many schools and community groups as possible so we can inspire change and climate action at a local level. You can hear more from Producer/Director Sally Ingleton about the Crowdfunding Campaign here.
Please go to our Crowdfunding site and Donate a few dollars if you can!
We have some wonderful rewards on offer from an amazing group of generous partners including Tarkine Trails, Tasmanian Walking Company, Bob Brown Foundation, Keep Tassie Wild, Dr Lisa Searle, Peter Scott Yoga, Polperro Dolphin Swims, Hanuman Restaurant, Huon Bush Retreats, Red Parka, Hobart Bookshop, Missy Higgins, John Butler Trio, Dan Broun Photographer and more.
Jimmy Shu’s Taste of the Territory launched on SBS Food on 23 April 2020.
This 8-part series takes viewers across the Top End of Australia to meet a variety of multicultural cooks who now call Darwin home, along with exploring the ancient food culture of the First Nations people.

Filming covered stories at some of Darwin’s iconic food sites such as Mary’s Laksa and the Banh Mi stalls at Parap market and stories about bush foods at Aboriginal Bush Traders and out in Maningrida. Many Thanks to Nitmiluk Gorge’s Cicada Lodge for hosting our crew for a story about the amazing food they produce.
Following discussion with the community at Wurrumiyanga on Bathurst Island we have changed the title to TAYAMANGAJIRRI which is Tiwi for “we look after each other”.
The film is now picture locked and with sound mixer extraordinaire Matthew Cunliffe.
TAYAMANGAJIRRI was directed by Charmaine Ingram and produced by Sally Ingleton. Our editor was Sam Frederick. Music is by Tiwi cult band B2M.
We look forward to releasing the finished product.
Sally Ingleton and Naina Sen are about to start shooting an 8×25 minute series for SBS Food. The series will be presented by Darwin chef Jimmy Shu and will showcase the multicultural food of Darwin and the Top End.
