Gittoes & Dalton Productions

Australian filmmakers George Gittoes and Gabrielle Dalton have collaborated widely on internationally recognised creative projects since 1981, after establishing their production company.

George and Gabrielle have worked on feature films, environmental theatre, fine art and publishing, and are best known for their ground-breaking documentaries.

George Gittoes studied Fine Arts in Sydney University in 1968 and was encouraged to leave for New York, where he worked with Joe Delaney in 1968-1969.

He founded the Yellow House in Sydney with Martin Sharp, which included other artists such as Bruce Goolde and Peter Wright and then proceeded to set up his first studio in 1972 in Bundeena, NSW.

He won the Fishers Ghost Art Prize in 1974 and had a solo show of paintings and photos that were exhibited in Coventry Gallery Sydney, ACP, Solander Gallery and Brummels Gallery.

He married Gabrielle Dalton in 1980 and together they collaborated on large scale outdoor community performances in 1977 to 1984, including Rosella Sisters and the Rainbow Eel and Fire Dream. They proceeded also to work on a series of documentaries such as Unbroken Spirit, Frontier Women, Bullets of the Poets and more.

In 1997, George was awarded Member of the Order of Australia.
