Quest for Jackie Chan! Urban Action Film forum was a massive success with a crowd of more than 100 people packed into the Fairfield School of Arts to watch filmmakers showcase their projects and discussion of the action film genre that is emerging in Australia, featuring Hong Kong action film director, Antony Szeto.

Joining him was a show-stopping speaker line up including names like Craig Anderson (ABC TV series “Double the Fist”), Peter Castaldi (managing director of PackScreen distributors), Warren Coulton (Clear Vision Stunt Studios), Igor Breakenback (creator “Good Luck with That”) and award-winning multimedia parkour artist, Ali Kadhim who discussed issues such as funding, independent filmmaking, collaboration, audience development and the potential of online distribution and marketing.

Additional special guests include Joy Hopwood (former “Play School” presenter), Chris Pang (lead cast for “Tomorrow When the War Began”), Wang Fei (martial arts actress in “Wushu”) and Renee Lim (TV series “East West 101”).

Finally, Maria Tran updated the audience with the “Quest for JackieChan!” project and her September travels through Brisbane, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne & Canberra in the search of Australia’s Chan fans and action film fanatics who will send their personal video messages to this Kung Fu larrikin. By mid-November she intends to hit Jackie Chan’s Hong Kong office in the bid to score a one-on-one meet.

Quest for Jackie Chan! is a project that offers people from all walks of life from Australia’s major capital cities of Australia to showcase their self-initiated projects and groups and how that relates to Jackie Chan.
