Travelling Film Festival Comes to Nambour
The Best of Sydney Film Festival Makes a Grand Entrance in Nambour
The Travelling Film Festival, the regional tour of the Sydney Film Festival, is heading to Nambour for the very first time, bringing seven local and international award-winning films – six features and one documentary – to Majestic Cinemas Nambour, 6-8 October 2017.
The Travelling Film Festival, started by David Stratton in 1974, tours to 18 regional locations year-round, including six Queensland centres, nine in New South Wales and three in the Northern Territory.
Direct from Sydney Film Festival, the program includes many cinematic gems that played to sold-out theatres across the Festival in June this year.
Winner of the Foxtel Movies Audience Award at Sydney Film Festival and The Age Critic’s Award at Melbourne International Film Festival, Ali’s Wedding tells the hilarious real-life story of lead actor Osamah Sami, whose own arranged marriage that lasted less than two hours. Directed by Jeffrey Walker (Modern Family, Angry Boys), the film is a humorous and clever insight into multicultural life in contemporary Australia, and will open the Festival on the Friday night, followed by the Opening Night Reception.
“We are thrilled for the festival’s first-ever visit to Nambour!” said Festival Manager Karina Libbey. “We would like to make the Festival an important part of Nambour’s cultural calendar for years to come and hope the local community enjoys our selection of some of the greatest films from Sydney Film Festival!”
TFF Nambour Highlights
