John Moore (1949 – 2019)

John Moore was one of Australia’s leading documentary producers and founder of Sensible Films and 360 Degree Films (with Sally Ingleton)

His many film awards include an Australian Film Institute Award for Best TV Documentary for GUNS & ROSES (1991), best documentary at the Melbourne and Sydney Film Festivals for BLACK MAN’S HOUSES (1993) and the $15,000 NSW Premiers History Award for THOMSON OF ARNHEM LAND (2001).

John produced PUTUPARRI AND THE RAINMAKERS (2016), a feature documentary that won Australia’s richest film prize, the Cinefest Oz prize. 

John’s dedication to the industry, to filmmakers and to the art of telling stories via the documentary form is legendary. He will be greatly missed by his friends, family and the documentary community in Australia.
