Horror film by the Philippou twins gets major recognition at AACTA Awards


Twin YouTubers Danny and Michael Philippou took out eight gongs at this year’s 2024 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards.

According to The Australian, the brothers’ horror film ‘Talk To Me‘ won awards for best film and best director, and Sophie Wilde beat out Cate Blanchett for the best lead actress trophy.

After debuting internationally at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2023, ‘Talk to Me,’ which was made on a $7 million budget in 2022, caught the eye of the cool kid distributor A24 and was picked for a “high seven figures” sum.

The film then raked in more than $140 million worldwide.

This success not only claimed the spot as A24’s top-grossing horror film, but also secured its rank as the second-highest-grossing film in the studio’s history.
