The Travelling Film Festival will showcase the best in cinema from across Australia and around the globe, with Sydney Film Festival bringing Queenslanders a carefully curated selection of features, documentaries, short films and more. The full program for all six Queensland legs of the tour will be released on Monday 1 September, 2014.
Tickets to Australia’s longest running travelling film festival will be on sale upon the program release with film buffs spoilt for choice when it comes to world-class cinema at each of the Travelling Film Festival stops.
Travelling Film Festival Manager Alicia Emery is thrilled that Sydney Film Festival can bring a selection of acclaimed world cinema to regional centers. “It’s wonderful that the celebration of cinema that is Sydney Film Festival can live on longer than just the festival dates in Sydney.”
“We try to cater the program to appeal to a wide audience; we do try to include some of the extreme arthouse films as well as those that skew towards mainstream films.”
The Festival also strives to showcase Australian talent in the film industry, “It is so important to support local films, Australia has some amazing film talent and we are so proud to provide a platform for Australian filmmakers through both the Sydney and Travelling Film Festivals,” explains Emery.
Many of the titles in the festival program will arrive on the back of acclaimed runs on the international film festival circuit, as well as sell-out screenings at the Sydney Film Festival.
Every festival stop is looking to be packed full of memorable moments and moving cinematic experiences so book tickets early as soon as the program is released on September 1, as it won’t be long before they are all snapped up.
Travelling Film Festival acknowledges the financial assistance of Screen Australia, the Queensland Government, through Screen Queensland, and is supported by Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department.
