It might have been too strong for the Australian Film Commission but local film makers have finished their work “The Dinner Party” and it’s hitting the big screen this weekend at the Hunter Valley’s Dungog Film Festival.
This from the blurb:
What would you do if you found yourself at a dinner party where the hosts were planning to kill themselves afterwards? What if there was more to it than that? What if you started to have doubts about what the plan was, who knew the plan or even if it was really going to eventuate? Maybe you only know half the story…..
THE DINNER PARTY is an independent Australian feature film made by filmmakers who love cinema that confronts and challenges. Influenced by the filmmakers that brought us REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, FESTEN, BULLY and MEAN CREEK. This film is an emotional roller coaster that only loosens its grip on you when the blood drains and the credits roll…..
Hopefully we’ll get a local screening soon.
And thanks to sambahdi here’s the trailer:
UPDATE: And in big news the film has been accepted into competition at the UK’s prestigious Raindance Film Festival. Congratulations all round!
