Heads up film buffs! It’s just under a month to go until the Canberra International Film Festival (CIFF) kicks off.
The vast program is online and director Simon Weaving had this to say:
I am thrilled to present you with the films of the 14th Canberra International Film Festival – a little bit of magic from around the world, with stories from places as varied as the Arctic Circle and the deserts of Africa, films full of complex, hopeful, uncertain and compassionate people looking for meaning, or love or maybe just something to smile about. And whether you like your stories wickedly mad, dark and moody or bold and epic, there’s something to captivate you in this year’s selection. I am really excited about our new Horror strand, with a mix of classic and brand-spanking new frighteners for those who like their popcorn coated with adrenalin!
It’s also been a great year for documentaries – many of these will only be screened once and are unlikely to get a commercial release in our city, so take your pick quickly!
