Her daughter Erica Glynn and son Warwick Thornton are internationally renowned filmmakers, and her grandchildren Dylan River and Tanith Glynn-Maloney bring a fresh vision to the third generation.

'What I love is that when they stand together as a family we get to see what they have given to our Australian screen industry, their extraordinary impact and legacy.' - Deborah Mailman

'An iconic Alice Springs family of three generations who have had an enormous and ongoing influence on Australian film and other media. The award could have gone to any one of them alone, but by drawing the connection between each of the family members, it gives recognition to the special culture of family and community and the unique creative vision that imbues them all ... It is a strong and talented family group that Australian audiences should be appreciative and very proud of.' - Helen Eddy, ReadPlus
