Samuel Van Grinsven’s graduating masters film, Sequin in a Blue Room has secured international distribution. It had its world premiere on 14 June 2019 at the Sydney Film Festival, where it won an award for Best Narrative Feature, and was released in theatres in Australia in August 2020. The US and UK acquired the rights to the queer coming-of-age tale produced by fellow AFTRS graduate Sophie Hattch, with Peccadillo Pictures, a UK-based distributor of art house, gay and lesbian, independent and world cinema.
