Australian feature film Galore has begun filming in Canberra.

The film, written and directed by Rhys Graham, follows four teenagers whose lives are thrown together late one night ahead of the devastating bushfires of 2002. It stars Ashleigh Cummings (Tomorrow When The War Began), Toby Wallace (Nim’s Island 2), Lily Sullivan (Mental), Aliki Matangi, Maya Stange (Garage Days) and Oscar Redding (Van Dieman’s Land).


Galore is being produced by Philippa Campey (Bastardy) and executive produced by Sue Murray, Victoria Treole and Eleonora Granata-Jenkinson.

Campey said Galore was an intensely personal film for Graham.

"His screenplay, which has such a strong sense of place given his intimacy with the very particular world of Canberra’s outer suburbs, is a work of incredible beauty and power," Campey said in a statement.

Galore, which has received financial support from Screen Australia, Screen ACT, Film Victoria, the MIFF Premiere Fund and Deluxe, will be distributed in Australia by Hopscotch Films/Entertainment One. Entertainment One is handing international sales.
