The film reunites writer/director Sarah Watt and producer Bridget Ikin after their award-winning 2005 feature Look Both Ways. That film won prizes at the Toronto, Rotterdam and Melbourne festivals and from the Australian Film Institute.
The new film is shooting now in Melbourne and stars Matt Day (Muriel's Wedding) and Sacha Horler (Look Both Ways).
My Year Without Sex is about a young wife and mother who has to deal with a crisis and some hilarious domestic moments.
Joy Wong of The Works International said: 'The moment that we read this script we knew that this was a project that we had to be involved in. Sarah's previous work demonstrates her wonderful ability as a filmmaker, and we're delighted to have this chance to work with her on her latest feature.'
The film is a Hibiscus Films production financed by The Film Finance Corporation Australia, Film Victoria, PMP, The South Australian Film Corporation and the Adelaide Film Festival.
