The Untold Story
About Us

Welcome Stranger Productions is a multi award winning production house based in Melbourne.

Our films have screened at festivals all over Australia and abroad. We have created films that have been acquired by national TV networks, Apple TV and Virgin Airlines.

Our films have been officially selected by four Oscar Accredited Film Festivals, one in which we won the jury prize. We have won dozens of Australian film festivals, most notably in 2018 we won an ACCTA award for best comedy film (Social Shorts).

Our objective is to raise awareness about mental illness, bullying, youth suicide and depression. We believe film gives us a great opportunity to do that.
