Not only do the Jameson IF Awards support the Australian film and television industry but they also embrace the music scene, and performing at this year’s show will be Tim Freedman and The Idle. Best known for his role as the lead singer and keyboardist in The Whitlams, Freedman last week launched his first new album in six years with his new band. They will be performing the song, You Weren’t In Love With Me, from the album Australian Idle.
The IF Awards have always been a highlight in the Australian cultural calendar, with some of the coolest and most talented film stars walking the red carpet. The 2011 Jameson IF Awards Sydney are no different, with the announcement that Callan McAuliffe, Richard Roxburgh, David Wenham, Sophie Lowe and Dan Wyllie will be joining Xavier Samuel as presenters on the evening.
At just sixteen years old, Callan McAuliffe has already been tipped as the actor to watch, with the young Australian having made his way onto the US screens in the film I am Number Four. Currently filming the Baz Luhrmann epic, The Great Gatsby, as the role of young Gatsby, McAuliffe is also due to star in Paradise Lost alongside Bradley Cooper, Camilla Belle and Casey Affleck. David Wenham has starred in blockbuster movies such as 300, Australia and Public Enemies alongside Johnny Depp. Film veteran, Richard Roxburgh is well known for playing a villain or two in his career.
