My film 'Barbecue' is having its World Premiere at this year's SXSW - Hope you can come and see it!!

Matthew Salleh is an Australian born, US and Australian based documentary filmmaker who, with his partner Rose Tucker, has travelled to the corners of the globe to create his debut feature documentary 'Barbecue'. His work focuses on capturing intimate portraits of unique and vibrant cultures, as a pathway to understanding and appreciating the world we live in. The film will premiere at SXSW in 2017.

His previous short documentaries, 'Pablo’s Villa' and 'Central Texas Barbecue', both had world premieres at the Sydney Film Festival. Both also were selected for the Melbourne International Film Festival, St. Kilda Film Festival, Adelaide Film Festival, and Antenna Documentary Film Festival. 'Pablo’s Villa' was also the recipient of the 2013 ATOM Award for Best Australian Short Documentary.

Matthew and Rosie also create commercial and branded content through their company Urtext Films and in 2017 have expanded the company from Australia to NYC where they now reside.
