Wednesday: Bryan Brown presents 'Palm Beach'

Q&A with Bryan Brown. Bryan Brown will be back in Bankstown this week for a screening of Rachel Ward's Palm Beach, in which Bryan Brown is a lead actor. This film is particularly dear to us, with LFF co-director, Jessica Khoury, part of the film crew as Producer's Assistant and Create NSW Attachment. The film is set in Sydney's iconic, northern most beach. Old friends gather to celebrate a special occasion. However, amid lavish meals and good wine, tensions begin to simmer. 

This screening is at Hoyts Bankstown at 7.00pm.

Thursday: Girls Night Out screening of 'Listen'

All guests receive a goodies bag and glass of wine as part of this Girls Night Out Special Event hosted in partnership with HOYTS. Joud, a handsome sound engineer falls in love with strong and free-spirited Rana, who comes from a different social and religious background. A drastic turn of events gets between them and Rana suddenly slips away. As her parents forbid Joud from seeing her, he creatively finds a way of communicating with her.

This event is at Hoyts Bankstown at 7.00pm. Listen is also screening at Bowral on 15 November.


Friday: A Night of Shorts at AFTRS

In partnership with the Australian Film, Radio and Television School (AFTRS), we present Friday shorts. Three sessions of short films will be held at 5.30pm, 6.30pm and 7.30pm. Films include a mix of animation (Amal), comedy mockumentary films (Missed Fortunes and The Last Days of Man Tomorrow) and local content (The Strength of Lace and Silenced).
