American Cinematheque to honour Australian director Nadia Tass

31 July, 2012 by Rocheen Flaherty

The American Cinematheque will hold a retrospective during August to honour the work of Australian director Nadia Tass.

The Los Angeles-based retrospective will screen Tass’ award winning films Malcolm, The Big Steal, Amy and Matching Jack over a two-night tribute.


Tass, who has just finished directing her latest film Fatal Honeymoon, has previously won awards at the Milan International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, and Asia Pacific Film Festival. She is also the recipient (along with her partner, cinematographer and producer David Parker) of the prestigious Byron Kennedy award for her contribution to the Australian film industry.

Tass, who began her career as an actor on the show Prisoner, has worked consistently in both America and Australia with her US titles including Pure Luck, The Miracle Worker and Undercover Christmas.

The American Cinematheque tribute will feature Tass discussing her work between film screenings on August 17. Fatal Honeymoon will be released in Australian theatres early next year.
