Expect a bunch of fantastic independent films at the ARC cinema when the eighth annual Possible Worlds Film Festival hits Canberra later this month.
Screening in Canberra for the very first time will be Sarah Polley’s award-winning documentary STORIES WE TELL; NORTHERN LIGHT, which charts the daily lives of families in recession-ravaged Michigan; LUNARCY!, a portrait of eccentrics and visionaries obsessed with the Moon; and Zach Clark’s raunchy Christmas film, WHITE REINDEER (which is preceded by short film, ASIAN GANGS).
“We’re thrilled to bring new, highly acclaimed films from the US and Canada to Canberra,” says Possible Worlds director Mathieu Ravier. “Our focus on independent cinema means the Festival adds to the diversity of what can be seen on the capital’s screens. Possible Worlds is known as a friendly, inclusive event, and the screenings of Stories We Tell and Lunarcy! will be preceded by a free drinks reception.”
The festival will run for three nights at ARC Cinema with the support of the High Commission of Canada in Australia and Cosmos. For more information, visit www.possibleworlds.net.au.
