Danny and Michael Philippou’s film to premiere at Sundance Film Festival

·

Talk To Me, the Australian-made film by South Australian YouTube pranksters, Danny and Michael Philippou, will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2023. 

Talk To Me will be one of four Australian films to be shown at the prestigious festival.

Screen Australia chief executive, Graeme Mason, told ABC News the “announcements were priceless for the Australian film sector.”

Danny and Michael said they’re “so excited” to be premiering Talk To Me at the Sundance Film festival.

The twin brothers secured funding for their debut feature film in 2020 and instantly started co-writing and directing the film alongside Michael Beck.

The film has been described as “more serious” than their usual prankster YouTube videos.

“It’s a film about connection and – metaphorically – about depression,” they said.

The Sundance Film Festival has previously featured well-known South Australian films, such as Wolf Creek in 2005 and Time Machine in 2015.

The festival runs for 11 days from mid January 2023.
