- Everlyn Sampi, (Molly Craig), ran away twice during filming. In one instance, she was found in a phone booth, trying to buy tickets back to Broome.
- The world premiere of this film was held in an outdoor screening at Jigalong, the outback community where the girls were taken from, and where their families still live.
- The last scene in the movie, which shows the real-life Molly Craig walking with a walking stick, was shot first. According to Phillip Noyce, during an interview after a screening, Molly's age and health made it so that it would be best if that scene was shot first.
- Doris Pilkington, author of the book "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence", is the daughter of Molly Craig (played by Everlyn Sampi in the film).
- Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
