          Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for successOn 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-...record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The worlds most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it; the charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became almost a prisoner of the city. The third film from the Academy Award-nominated, BAFTA-winning team behind Senna and Amy, the film will be constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradonas personal archive and in the style of Senna and Amy, will be a high-end and definitive feature documentary made with the full support of Maradona.

          From Marcus Cobbledick, co-director of the MIFF 2017 Audience Award-winning documentary All For One, and Josh Cable comes this insightful, intimate look at Collingwood Football Club as it rebuilds itself and aims for glory over the course of the 2018 season. The Pies ended 2017 n...ear the bottom of the ladder, and with coach Nathan Buckleys career on thin ice. When he was unexpectedly granted a two-year extension on his contract, Buckley vowed to make changes and in doing so, he guided the club to its first Grand Final since 2011. With unprecedented access to the inner sanctum, Josh Cable and Marcus Cobbledick chart the clubs fortunes from crisis mode to the MCG on that final, fateful Saturday in September and beyond. They started a challenging 2018 under the scourge of injury and in a media spotlight harsher than that shone on just about any other sporting club in the nation. But by turning inwards and owning up to past problems, Buckley and the club rebuilt their approach and their culture from the ground up, resulting in an unprecedented comeback that took them not only within spitting distance of Finals glory but into a vaunted position as a club to emulate (and earning Buckley the AFLCAs coach of the year award).Buckley and players Brodie Grundy, Jarryd Blair and Adam Treloar, among others, open up about the physical, mental and emotional challenges faced throughout the year, making Collingwood: From the Inside Out more than just another footy documentary.

Starting again alone, stripped bare and with nowhere to hide, Liam risks everything to make the greatest rocknroll comeback of all time. Directors Charlie Lightening and Gavin Fitzgerald invite us backstage for a no-holds-barred look at the life of one of the most talked-about and charismatic artists of his generation.

          MYSTIFY MICHAEL HUTCHENCE is a powerfully intimate and insightful portrait of the internationally renowned frontman of INXS, Michael Hutchence. Deftly woven from an extraordinary archive of rich imagery, Michaels private home movies and those of his lovers, friends, and family, t...he film delves beneath the public persona of the charismatic Rock God and transports us through the looking glass to reveal a multifaceted, intensely sensitive and complex man. For an all too brief time, we revel in Michaels Dionysian beauty and sensuality on stage and off. We listen to the range of his extraordinary voice and witness the charmed way he travels through life as he is propelled to world acclaim. But Michael struggled with the idea of success, the creative limits of pop stardom and how to express his integrity; a longing that shaped his life and music and gave birth to a desire to go far beyond the constraints of pop.A violent event strikes Michael and changes his life dramatically, fracturing his sense of self and robbing him of his connection to life. Made vulnerable, he is unable to navigate the complex challenges he faces, and has little defence against the onslaught of the tabloid press that descend on his world. Amidst the darkness, Michaels newborn daughter, Tiger, becomes his one bright light. MYSTIFY MICHAEL HUTCHENCE is written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, director of the majority of both INXS and Michael's music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Michael played the lead.
