Francis Firebrace

Francis Firebrace grew up in the Australian bush where he would travel by horse and cart and follow the banks of the Murray-Darling Basin. He began his school education at the age of 7, but left seven years later and started work as a sheep and cattle stockman. At the age of 29 he moved to Canberra to begin a new chapter in his life – to become a film maker. Francis has had some success within the film industry as 5 of his films are in the national film archives in Canberra and won in 1976 the International Moomba top 10 award, which was awarded to his film “Give my regards to the Devil”. While living in the Whitsundays Islands from 1984 to the 90’s he began telling his own stories to tourist. These stories took him on a new journey that saw him travelling from country to country. He currently lives in England.
