The WOW Film Festival will be screening at Grafton on Friday May 8 and in Yamba Friday and Saturday May 8-9. This stimulating and challenging selection of films is an eclectic mix of drama and comedy.........
The World of Women (WOW) Film Festival is a short film festival that promotes and awards the talents of women directors, producers, writers, editors and cinematographers in the Australian film industry and in Oceania. It is a unique festival that offers emerging and established filmmakers the opportunity to screen short works giving a thematic perspective of 'seeing the world through the eyes of women'. Clarence Valley audiences will see films featuring well known actors (such as Alex Dimitrades, David Gulpilil, Catherine McClements, Diane Craig and Gary Macdonald) and be surprised by new talent who will enthrall the audience with compelling performances. [Clarence Valley Council]
Festival tickets cost $25 or $10 per session. The festival opens at 6.45pm Friday with wine and cheese, followed by the first session at 7.15pm at Treelands Drive Cinema, Yamba, featuring River of No Return and other shorts.
No Reservations is screening with short films at the evening session on Saturday, which starts with wine and cheese at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Clarence Valley's own Lyn Hope will have three short films, Bed, Legal Speed and Tricia's Time, shown at the Yamba Saturday May 9 evening session.
Lyn describes Bed as "somewhere between experimental art, documentary and voyeurism" that should resonate with anyone who has ever shared a bed with a dog.
