The Opening Night Film 'The Odyssey', looks at the life of celebrity oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. There's not many of us whom have not heard of Cousteau and I have no doubt, many have watched his television series.

His invention of the Aqua-Lung played a big role in creating underwater films that dazzled all of us. Come along and take this journey as if you're a member of Cousteau's crew and follow his amazing career and relationship with the sea which also changed ours forever.


From a biopic on opening night, it's comedy time for the closing night film, 'A bun in the oven'. Finding out you're pregnant at 49 is not what you'd call a fun situation, at least not for Nicole. In a household bursting at the seams with an eccentric elderly mother, a daughter, her pesky partner and their 6 year old daughter, and an unemployed husband, life couldn't get anymore hectic.

Fumbling her way through all the stresses and demands that come with pregnancy, Nicole finally learns how to navigate her life for the first time.


This festival is no different to the ones before it, arriving complete with special events, pre-screening party, drinks and canapés, and a bit of cheese tasting. Head to the website to secure your tickets, and for other information like festival venues, school screenings, and if you want to volunteer.

You can even win a prize. First prize is a trip for two to France, the second, a trip for two to New Caledonia, and two pamper packages for the third and fourth prizes. Register now, to be in it to win it.
