At the International Filmmaker Meet & Greet, the Aussies were in full force. Why so many? Because they party better than the rest of us? Turns out that after the UK and France, Australia has the most features in the festival (4), and all were represented by filmmakers, cast, and friends. Good things are bubbling up down under:
“Bitter & Twisted,” a coming of age story by Christopher Weekes, has a most intriguing title.
“Dying Breed,” by Jody Dwyer, puts a Tasmanian spin on bloody horror.
“Donkey in Lahore,” a documentary by Faramarz K-Rahber, follows an unlikely romance.
“Newcastle,” a surfing story by Dan Castle, has an ensemble of cute young actors.
