'John Hughes is pursuing a cross-platform project documenting the filmmakers’ co-operatives around Australia. An early member of the Melbourne Filmmakers Co-op, and a filmmaker with work in distribution with the Sydney Co-op and the AFI, he was a participant in the Working Group convened by the AFC to advise on distribution of Australian independent films following the demise of the Sydney Filmmakers Co-op in 1985–86. In 2011, in collaboration with Tom Zubrycki and with development support from Film Victoria and Screen NSW, shooting began on a series of interviews toward a documentary film iteration of the project. This work is continuing.' (Source : Senses of Cinema, 77)
