The Debut Female Director Enterprise

Cobalt Films

Emerald Productions is working with 7 award-winning emerging female directors to develop and execute their debut feature films.  Liz Watts, the highly awarded producer of The Rover, Lore and Animal Kingdom is an Executive Producer on the Cobalt slate.

The Cobalt slate will be original, daring and distinctive: the films will take a risk in some way and be executable at a budget of AUD$ 2 million.

Our ambition is for the films on the Cobalt slate to achieve critical acclaim at A-List film festivals and have cross-over box-office potential both domestically and internationally.

And most importantly, these films will showcase the voices and vision of a new group of talented female filmmakers, telling stories that feature potent female characters.
