In January 2004, the Tweed Shire City of the Arts 2003-2005 called for stories from the local community that reflected the beauty and cultural diversity of life in the Tweed Region. More than seventy stories were submitted. Six of them were selected to be made into short films in a project called Homegrown Filmworks.

This is the Behind-the-Scenes story of the films and filmmakers. This film was commissioned by Tweed Shire Council in 2004. You can also read more about the project at http://pandora.nla.gov.au/pan/128693/20110815-1326/cultural5.pdf

Speed On Tweed (2003)

From 2002, the town of Murwillumbah, in Northern New South Wales, came alive with the sounds and smells of historic car racing.

This video was shot in the 2003 Edition of Speed on Tweed. Meet the drivers and owners of some of Australia's rarest cars: the Maybach Special, the Zephyr Special, the only remaining 4WD Miller Indy Car, and some amazing Ferraris... Watch these cars as they race around the track in time trials, in the middle of the town, and the more than 160 other cars which competed over the whole week-end. 

Meet Aussie racing legend Frank Gardner, and many others, as we go behind the scenes of one of the biggest events of the year in Murwillumbah.

Shot by Magali & Brian McDuffie, Paul Armstrong, and Soolaba Doyle.
