Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bruce Beresford (born 16 August 1940) is an Australian film director who has made more than 30 feature films over a 40-year career. Beresford was born in Paddington, Sydney, the son of Lona (n e Warr) and Leslie Beresford, who sold electrical goods. He grew up in the then outer-western suburb of Toongabbie, and went to The King's School, Parramatta. He made several short films in his teens. He completed a bachelor's degree in humanities majoring in English at Sydney University, and then moved to England in 1962 in search of film work. He could not break into the British film scene, so he answered an advertisement for an editing job in Nigeria, where he worked for two years, in Enugu. He then returned to England and worked for the British Film Institute as a producer of short films by first-time directors.
