Wild Dances

Opening Night film Love Serenade is a 101 min film starring the wonderful Miranda Otto. It captures catastrophic events resulting from two women competing for the affection of a smooth talking DJ. Featuring an all-female creative team, it won the Camera d'or at the 1996 Cannes Film Fest and was nominated for 2 AFI Awards. At the 'after party' following this opening night film, you can send your own messages of love while chilling to some smooth tunes and a few drinks.

Drama, the closing night film follows Anna who is having a hard time since her split from John. She travels to Paris and her best friend Jean, and devotes herself to another task entirely. Your ticket to the closing night event includes entry into the Shorts Awards presentation and afterparty. A feast for the senses, there'll be 3 sessions of shorts, showcasing an exceptional series of short films made by Australian women in 2 of the sessions and Australian women students in the 3rd, that go across the narrative to animation and documentary. See here for other special events and Q&A sessions. Be entertained and check out the powerhouse of women, heading this Festival.
