In June 2005, nine months after it first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Oyster Farmer was featured at the Sydney Film Festival.
That was just before its cinema release in Australia on 30 June.
The Festival ran from 10 to 25 June 2005.
These pictures were taken by Jeremy Piper a photographer from Sydney on 16 June 2005, according to our old sources. We are not sure if they were used in any publications.
There are also two other pictures taken during the time of the Sydney Film Festival, but we are not sure if they were also taken by Jeremy Piper.
