Richard Wolstencroft is an Australian underground filmmaker and the founder of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, which he currently still runs. His own films frequently deal with issues of violence and degeneracy. When his film Pearls Before Swine was rejected from the Melbourne International Film Festival, he created his own fest as a counter-programming rival. Wolstencroft has also been a tireless advocate for the promotion of more genre-themed movies to be produced in Australia to combat his country's decline in worldwide cinematic respect.
