My Mistress Currently In Production In Australia

Maggie Emmanuelle Beart
Tine Klint, Managing Director of LevelK international sales agent, announced production is underway on Queensland's Gold Coast for My Mistress, directed by Stephen Lance which LevelK represent and are promoting at EFM 2013.

Internationally acclaimed French actress Emmanuelle BeÅLart (Manon of the Spring, Mission: Impossible) has joined one of Australia's rising international stars, AFI Award‐winning actor Harrison Gilbertson in the title role opposite Jacki Weaver, and AFI Award‐winning actress Rachael Blake (Sleeping Beauty, Lantana, Hawke) in the seductive and touching My Mistress.

What starts as a beautiful and strangely innocent affair between a vulnerable teenage romantic and a French S&M mistress, soon becomes more dangerous in My Mistress, an unconventional and provocative love story.

The film is directed by Stephen Lance, from a script he developed with writer Gerard Lee. Leanne Tonkes of Mini Studios and Steve Kearney are the producers, with Robyn Kershaw as executive producer.

A crew of exceptional talent are on board to help bring Steve Lance's unique voice and sophisticated visual style to life. Bringing My Mistress to the screen are cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson (Shine, The Sessions, Little Women, Oscar and Lucinda), Academy Award(R) nominated editor Jill Bilcock (Moulin Rouge, Red Dog, Elizabeth, Romeo + Juliet), and Academy Award(R) winning costume designer Angus Strathie (Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom).

Lance commented, "It's important that my first film give audiences an artistic experience that is both visually and emotionally exciting, and I couldn't be happier with the world class caliber of cast and crew who are joining us on this amazing journey. Emmanuelle is a fearless actress who has portrayed so many incredible women. Her emotional complexity is perfect for this role. Equally, Harrison is such a brilliant actor with an already impressive career, and he'll bring something special to this film."

Producer Leanne Tonkes of Mini Studio said, "We're blessed to have such immense support from our production and investment partners, many of whom have assisted us for well over a decade. It's a testament of their belief in us, and our shared vision for this beautiful story. I'm sure this opportunity will enable us to significantly advance a slate of films we've both been working on for many years."

Transmission Films Managing Director Andrew Mackie said, "We are excited to be supporting the debut feature of Stephen Lance, a director we've been tracking for many years. We pride ourselves on distributing groundbreaking and distinctive Australian films and with the wealth of talented creatives on board for My Mistress we know the result will be something special."

My Mistress is produced with financial support from Screen Australia, Screen Queensland, Film Victoria, the Melbourne International Film Festival Premiere Fund, and Soundfirm.

Transmission Films are the local distributors of My Mistress and international sales are being handled by LevelK.
