It is with Texas-sized pleasure that Hedone Productions announces today that the World Premiere of Australian feature film The Infinite Man has been confirmed for the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in the US in March. The Infinite Man is the only Australian film selected to screen in the ‘Visions’ section of the festival, which presents audacious, risk-taking artists in the new cinema landscape that demonstrate raw innovation and creativity in narrative filmmaking.

2014 marks the 20th year of SXSW Film, which has grown rapidly in recent years, with Variety observing that ‘the industry will look back at 2013 as a game-changer for SXSW’. Encompassing music and interactive technologies as well as film, the festival is uniquely positioned as a creative hub like no other, with the Sydney Morning Herald last week nominating SXSW as one of the ten festivals to change your life. SXSW Film takes place in Austin, Texas from 7 – 15 March.

The trailer has been released today and can be previewed online at: https://vimeo.com/83463530

The anticipated feature debut from director Hugh Sullivan, starring Josh McConville, Hannah Marshall and Alex Dimitriades, The Infinite Man is a time travel comedy-romance about Dean (Josh McConville), a man whose attempts to construct the perfect romantic weekend backfire when he traps his lover Lana (Hannah Marshall) in an infinite loop.

 “We are thrilled to premiere The Infinite Man at the SXSW Film Festival, given its reputation as one of the best launching pads for indie films like ours. Recent SXSW premieres include Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture, Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers and Duncan Jones’ Source Code and we couldn’t be happier to be in that company”, said Kate Croser, Producer.

 The Infinite Man is the anticipated feature film debut of writer/director Hugh Sullivan whose short films have screened in official selection at the Palm Springs International Shortfest, Flickerfest and the Melbourne International Film Festival. As a winner of the Spirit of Youth Award – Moving Pictures in 2006, Hugh received a one-year mentorship with director Phillip Noyce.

 The Infinite Man stars acclaimed actor Josh McConville (Underbelly, Wild Boys, Redfern Now) in his first feature film lead role as the gifted scientist and control freak Dean. Widely regarded for his work on the stage, Josh was crowned Best Actor at the Sydney Theatre Awards in 2013 for his role in Griffin Theatre’s The Boys. Josh’s feature film debut came in 2013 in David Wenham’s directorial debut Commission from the celebrated anthology film The Turning, in which he starred starring alongside Hugo Weaving.

Hannah Marshall, who stars as Dean’s girlfriend Lana, is best known for her role as Loretta Schembri in Packed to the Rafters, one of the highest rating shows on Australian television, for which received a Logie nomination for Most Popular New Female Talent (2011). AACTA award winner Alex Dimitriades (The Slap, Head On) stars as Lana’s ex-boyfriend, the disgraced 1980s Olympian, Terry.

 The film is produced by Hedone Productions’ Kate Croser (Danger 5, 100 Bloody Acres) and Sandy Cameron. Croser also produced My Tehran For Sale, which was filmed in Tehran and went on to screen in Official Selection at Toronto, Vancouver, Busan and Rotterdam International Film Festivals and won the IF Independent Spirit Award (2009). Cameron Rogers and Jonathan Page (Mary and Max, The Babadook) are Executive Producers.

 The Infinite Man was produced by Hedone Productions in association with Bonsai Films, with investment from the South Australia Film Corporation (SAFC) through their FilmLab funding initiative, and development assistance from Screen Australia.

 FilmLab is a $4.2million development initiative of the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC), funded by the South Australian government. Designed to develop filmmakers who have a track record in short form to take the next step into long form film production, the initiative was also built to find unique new voices in Australian cinema.

The Infinite Man will be released in Australian cinemas in 2014 by Infinite Releasing with international sales handled by Shoreline Entertainment.
