St Kilda Film Festival @ St Kilda Town Hall
With sessions every night this week, there’s plenty of ‘reel’ good reasons to get to the fest, including:
Monday 7.30: Lost laughs from the past – featuring lots of local color, including Mitchell Faircloth, Tracy Harvey and Gary Adams. So shocking that no one dared screen them for 30 years – but worth a laugh. Or as Slim Whittle would say, ‘thanks for being the best damn audience that’s ever been had – thanks for being had’.
Wednesday: Youth programs and Indigenous Films
Thursday 7.30 pm: SoundKilda – music videos on a big screen played loud.
Saturday from 2 pm: Wild at Heart, Palms Springs Film International Shortfest (5.30 pm)
