When Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer discovered that $18,000 of taxpayers’ money was about to be wasted showing several films—including The President Versus David Hicks, which already cost us $433,000—at an Indonesian movie festival, he apparently intervened. Result: funding withdrawn. This is a brilliant outcome, although David Marr seems unimpressed for some reason.

UPDATE. In other local film/television news, Harry Hutton is negotiating with the ABC over a beach riot blockbuster!
