Red Dog producer Nelson Woss is screening his blockbuster film at the State Library of WA on Thursday and taking part in a Q&A to help the Shenton Park Dog Refuge.
Adapted from a bestselling book by Louis de Bernieres, Red Dog went on to become one of the biggest-ever Australian movies, taking more than $21 million at the box office and making it into the all-time top 10. It is still the highest-selling Australian DVD.
It also picked up a swag of prizes, including best feature at the IF Awards, AACTAs and WA Screen Awards.
Before Red Dog, Woss was best known for co-producing 2003 feature Ned Kelly, which starred Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom, Naomi Watts and Geoffrey Rush.
Woss is in pre-production on his next feature, Blue Dog, which will be a follow-up film to Red Dog (and Yellow Dog is the proposed third leg of a canine trilogy).
Following the screening of the movie Woss will take questions from the audience and provide some practical advice to those seeking to forge careers in the industry.
Drinks are from 7.30pm followed by the screening at 8pm. Entry for this Film and Television Institute event is by donation with 50 per cent of the proceeds going Shenton Park Dog Refuge.
