We kick off our new series with Australian film maker and director Bartholomew Sammut. A late night drinking session led to more than just great ideas, it spawned many projects, such as the Xposed International Queer Film Festival which is celebrating its tenth festival edition this May.
The panel Aussies Abroad invited attending filmmakers to share their experiences of working Down Under and in other parts of the world. The diversity of cinema amongst Australian and New Zealand filmmakers is further encouraged through experiences outside of home and the place where directors grow up or spend their adult lives.
The selection of films in this year’s Indigenous section gave an impressive insight into the depth and quality of stories being told by Indigenous and Non Indigenous filmmakers. During three post film discussions, audience members enjoyed the chance to talk about issues affecting Indigenous peoples in both Australia and New Zealand.
