Hello friend,

What do we have for you? A stunning new read from Australia’s queen of crime Jane Harper, a warm and funny film from New Zealand stand-up whizz Rose Matafeo, eight new concert films from the amazing Australian Chamber Orchestra and an opportunity for young Australians around the world to connect with their country and culture through song.

Reasons to be cheerful!

Jane Harper - The Survivors

FANZA - Book of the Season

A Sunday Times and Times Best Book of 2021.

'With The Survivors, Jane Harper proves she's unquestionably the real deal' - Val McDermid

A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away. When a body is discovered on a Tasmanian beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge in the murder investigation that follows.

As ever, Jane Harper's skilful ability to create a landscape that plays a central part in the plot ensures this is another tour de force. Highly recommended.

Rose Matafeo - Baby Done

Having a kid is the death of a certain kind of life

Since taking the top award at the 2018 Edinburgh fringe with her show Horndog, 28-year-old New Zealand standup Rose Matafeo has been unstoppable, even during a pandemic. Baby Done, her first big-screen starring role is now out on digital platforms. In addition, a TV special of Horndog airs on BBC Three in March while Starstruck, a BBC and HBO series, is due to launch later this year. Discover more about this quirky, progressive comedian - or just curl up on the sofa and enjoy her compulsively affable performance as reluctant mother in the romcom.
