Makeover star Kristen Condon and film maker Don Percy will meet film lovers at the Saturday afternoon 'Meet the Filmmaker' session during the Heathcote Film FestivalAugust 15, 2014 3:27am
This year’s Heathcote Film Festival features an eclectic mix of short films sourced from Australia and around the globe.
Festival co-director Tony Juhanson said many of the films had competed in Tropfest, Flickerfest, Melbourne International Film Festival and other festivals.
‘‘Award-winning films from established filmmakers are complemented by exciting offerings from newcomers, film students and even a talented 14-year-old,’’ he said.
‘‘With comedy, drama, pathos and suspense, there will be something for everyone.
‘‘Like many boutique arts festivals, the Heathcote Film Festival is quickly developing its own unique character and charm.’’
The festival starts on August 29 with a school screening of the multi-award-winning documentary The Earth Wins at Heathcote RSL hall.
The screening includes a Q and A session with the filmmakers, is open to the public and will be attended by school groups, with each one being presented with indigenous plants and trees from A&B Trees of Heathcote to reinforce the film’s environmental message.
The Earth Wins is screening at IMAX Melbourne and other venues around the world.
On August 30, film lovers can attend either a matinee or evening session at the Heathcote RSL Hall of Makeover.
Following the matinee session will be a meet the filmmaker session.
On the Sunday, film lovers can enjoy a program of contemporary indigenous films from the Black Screen Collection, a ‘festival within a festival’ from the National Film and Sound Archive at the Mona Lisa Gallery, High St, Heathcote.
The films bring indigenous stories and filmmaking talent to events across Australia, promoting cultural awareness and indigenous screen culture while providing plenty of entertainment.
