“Continental Drift” my VCA graduate short film had its Australian premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival recently. It was great to catch up with some cast and crew, and see the film again in front of a packed cinema audience.
I did an interview with MCV about the MIFF screening, in which I mentioned how great it was to have my Australian premiere at MIFF in Melbourne where I live. You can check out the interview here.
I also flew back from overseas to take part in the intensive Accelerator program, which is designed to boost selected filmmakers from a shorts to features career. I saw some interesting films, heard some interesting talks and met some great filmmakers.
MIFF Accelerator provides four days of workshops, screenings, seminars and networking events on the business and creative aspects of the film industry by leading local and international film practitioners for 15-20 short film directors seeking to make the transition to feature film making.
MIFF Accelerator occurs during the MIFF weekend of shorts screenings which includes public screenings of the Accelerator participants’ short films in specially-tagged Accelerator Screenings to the general public and concludes with the MIFF Shorts Awards.
