Healesville Mini Film Festival 2019

This was held on Sunday, March 3 and featured 3 of the films of famed Japanese director, Akira Kurosawa:

YOJIMBO

SANJURO

RASHOMON

Kurosawa's films proved to be as alive and entertaining today as they were when first released to western audiences in the 50s and 60s, and this was reflected in the positive scores given by audience members. 




Warburton Film Festival 2018

The 35th annual Warburton Film festival was held on June 15-17 at the Arts Centre, Warburton.

The festival goes from strength to strength with record numbers attending and many attendees proclaiming it "the best ever".

A BAG OF MARBLES, from France, was an audience favourite at the festival.

This year"s Golden Shorts Award winner IRONY by Radheya Jegatheva was an absolute stand-out.

Radheya's father, Jay Jay, seen here with presenter, Maggie Sail, came from Perth to accept the Golden Shorts Award on behalf of his son.
