Anthony Buckley is a leading figure in the Australian film industry. He began his career with the Sydney newsreel company Cinesound and through the 1960s edited many notable feature films, including Age of Consent, Wake in Fright and Rudolf Nureyev’s Don Quixote.

As a feature film producer, Tony made the acclaimed Caddie, winner of 14 international awards. This was followed by The Irishman, The Night The Prowler, The Killing of Angel Street and Kitty and the Bagman. Bliss was selected in competition at the Cannes Film Festival and won Best Film at the 1985 Australian Film Awards. Tony also produced the television mini-series The Harp in the South and its sequel Poor Man’s Orange, both ratings winners for the year. Then came the mini-series The Heroes and Heroes II for TVS Films UK.

In the 1990s he produced the documentary Nazi Supergrass, and Celluloid Heroes, a series to celebrate the centenary of Australian cinema. He also produced Tracey Moffatt’s first feature film Bedevil, On Our Selection, The Sugar Factory, The Potato Factory (based on the Bryce Courtenay novel) and Oyster Farmer.

Tony has been awarded the Order of Australia, the Raymond Longford Award, the Ken G. Hall Award, the Brisbane Film Festival’s Chauvel Award and an Honorary Masters Degree in Film and Television. He was also presented with the Dorothy Crawford Award in 1989 for service with selflessness and integrity to Australian writers and the industry at large.
