Destfest - Nov 24, Dec 1, 8 - Sydney


"CarriageWorks, Sydney’s newest centre for contemporary arts, presents the inaugural Destination Film Festival. Three Saturday afternoons of film + talk, curated by Megan Spencer (Triple J, SBS’s The Movie Show). Launching on Saturday 24 November, each week will present a program of dynamic, unique films from everywhere - Australia, the rest of the world, and cyber-space. The films are followed by a panel discussion with film-junkies of all types from the yolk and fringe of Australia’s film industry.

DestFest is a showcase of new and old films, and the obsession with GOOD FILM. Spencer has uncovered cutting edge new films that are exploring and pushing the boundaries of contemporary film-making. There are also rare, lost and unseen shorts that have been liberated from garages and bottom drawers of the industry’s most innovative and creative film-makers...

The industry is changing, film-makers are evolving, and we will explore the new movement towards technologically advanced film-making and distribution methods, and how the film world is adapting with the times.

Dates: Saturday 24 November, Saturday 1 December, Saturday 8 December
Time: From 2pm
Where: CarriageWorks, 245 Wilson Street Eveleigh
Tickets: On sale through Moshtix

The site also has a blog with entries by Megan Spencer.
