Rachel Perkins departs Blackfella Films

Perkins has said she is proud of 'the glass ceilings we smashed along the way and the audiences we have touched'.

Rachel Perkins has announced that she will be leaving Blackfella Films, the celebrated film and TV company she founded in 1992.

The company’s most recent project, the landmark documentary series The Australian Wars – produced, directed and presented by Perkins – is currently screening on SBS Television.

‘I could not be prouder of the legacy of ground-breaking content Rachel and I have built over two decades of creative partnership,’ said producer and creative collaborator Darren Dale, who joined the company in 2002. ‘From First Australians to Redfern Now, Total Control through to The Australian Wars, our collaboration has delivered on our ambition to inform, entertain and – most of all – change hearts and minds in ways we could never have imagined.
