TRAVELLING FILM FESTIVAL ANCHORS IN BUNDABERG

World Class Cinema Screening on the Queensland coast

Sydney Film Festival brings acclaimed Australian filmmaker Gillian Armstrong’s new documentary Women He’s Undressed to Moncrieff Entertainment Centre, sharing the untold story of Academy Award-winning Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly, from Kiama NSW, is part of a stellar line-up of global cinema on the road for the 2015 Travelling Film Festival, screening at Bundaberg from 9 to 11 October 2015.

Tickets to Australia’s longest running travelling film festival are on sale now.

With six short films and nine feature films, including two documentaries; ranging from locations as far-reaching as France, Denmark, India, Ireland, South Korea, Germany, and the USA; film fans will be spoilt for choice when it comes to world-class cinema over the Festival weekend.

Travelling Film Festival Manager Alicia Emery is thrilled the Festival can bring these important films to

Bundaberg. “This carefully curated film program includes a selection of 2015 Sydney Film Festival highlights as well as internationally acclaimed films that would otherwise not be screened to audiences outside of capital cities.” Emery said. “We hope Queensland film lovers will enjoy them as much as they delighted and entertained Sydney audiences.”

Important cinematic features not to be missed include Phoenix, the sixth collaboration between director Christian Petzold and Nina Hoss (Barbara), a drama about a concentration-camp survivor returning to Berlin to reclaim her life, as well as Far From Men, a gripping tale of morality and friendship set during the Algerian War, featuring a career-defining performance from Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen.

Fans of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones, will see the actor in a new light in A Second Chance, a powerfully dramatic thriller created by Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier. Grandma, a film exploring womanhood in America over three generations, sees the fabulous Lily Tomlin in great form.

Also screening is Song of the Sea, Tomm Moore’s latest hand-drawn animated feature inspired by Ireland’s rich Celtic folklore. Fantasy in its purest form, it was Academy Awards nominated in 2015, won Best Feature at the Irish Film & TV Awards and Shanghai Film Festival in the same year.

From South Korea, My Love, Don’t Cross That River won’t leave a dry eye in the house, telling the touching story of a South Korean couple married for 76 years.

The Festival also announced that 3 Hearts will screen at Bundaberg in the Travelling Film Festival. 3 Hearts is a love story about the cruelty of fate and passion that never fails and features French cinema icon Catherine Deneuve.

The Festival also brings the family-friendly Tamil/ Indian film The Crow’s Egg by filmmaker M. Manikandan. Dubbed the new Slumdog Millionaire, The Crow’s Egg is a funny, charming South Indian tale of two mischievous and resourceful brothers from a Chennai slum who become determined to taste pizza for the very first time. With tickets selling fast, don’t miss your chance to experience a unique and exciting array of festival quality cinema. ’Subscribe and Save’ packages offer great value for multiple ticket purchases.
