Aussie film and TV production Co bags award for promoting trade between India and Australia

Films and Casting Temple, one of Australia’s biggest film and TV production companies working with India, has been awarded for its outstanding contribution to the promotion of bilateral trade between India and Australia in the films and media sector, at the Indo Australian Business Excellence Awards.

The awards were formed to recognise businesses contributing to the A$7.3 billion annual trade between the two countries.

Temple, which has commandeered more than 93 per cent of the film and TV production activity between India and Australia, is now producing and co-producing most of the first Indo-Australian co-productions with leading cast, crew, and producers from Australia and India. The first one to roll will be Vikram Singh’s ‘An Indian Summer’ with producer John Winter.

With a track record of more than 115 successful projects involving feature films, TV commercials, TV series, delegations and film festivals, Temple has previously also received the award for Best Line Producer for Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, which was shot extensively in Australia.

Temple’s Executive Producer Rebecca Williams said, “With millions of dollars worth of India-centric Australian projects in development, most with government investment, the Australian film industry has a lot to gain from collaborating with the world’s fastest growing and biggest film industry, India.”

Some of the other projects Temple has worked on include ‘Deewane’, ‘Janasheen’, ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Dhoom’, as well as the first Indian TV series in Australia, the first Indian music video in Australia, and many leading TVCs for Percept, Lays, and Pepsi, along with the first comprehensive Indian film festival held in Sydney.

Expressing his happiness at having worked with some of the stalwarts of Bollywood, Producer/Director, Temple and Founding Head of Australia India Film Council, Anupam Sharma, emphasised the need for a co-production treaty between the two countries.
