After the David Michôd' Animal Kingdom - Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Oscar and Golden Globe nominalizations - the Australian cinema is on an ascending trend and TIFF will be the venue for the latest productions

It runs without saying that the story of the most notorious serial criminal in Australia, as shown in Justin Kurzel's  Snowtown - FIPRESCI prize at Cannes 2011 -, will make the headline. But don't forget Sleeping Beauty, Julia Leigh's debut in Cannes 2011, with the bizarre erotic experience of a young woman in the high society, or Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure (directed by Matthew Bate), a darkly hilarious modern fable about the Pop phenomenon in San Francisco at the beginning of the '90s, when two friends recorded the quarrels of their neighbours, and put them on audio tape, creating one of the world's first 'viral' pop-culture sensations.
