Gusto Films is an award-winning production company run by Gus Berger.
In addition to running leading film event organisations such as Thornbury Picture House & Blow Up Cinema , they make documentary films.
Gus started out running a record shop in the Degraves St subway called Rising Sounds Records.
He then spent some time in UK, working in music licensing and for the documentary organisation, DocHouse. During his time in London, Gus directed and produced a feature length documentary, Duke Vin and the Birth of Ska. The film told the inspirational story of sound system pioneer, Duke Vin and others who were instrumental in creating a Jamaican sound in the UK in the late 1950s.
He won a Best Director prize at the St Kilda Film Festival for his short film THE EAGLE and in 2023, he won an AFCA (Australian Film Critics Association) prize for Best Documentary for THE LOST CITY OF MELBOURNE, a film that was the highest grossing Australian documentary in the country in 2022.
We have recently self-published a photographic book on the film, details can be found by clicking on this link.
