The stars amassed at Randwick Ritz this week for a very special Popcorn Taxi screening of Mad Max. The 1979 Aussie classic was followed by a Q&A with original cast and crew in their first reunion in 31 years.
The night kicked off the very first Australian Film Festival; two weeks of solely Australian film running from February 24th to March 7th. On our radar is the Australian Short Film festival, and a screening of Bad Boy Bubby.
But it’s not just a showing of films; the festival aims to promote and nurture the Australian film industry through workshops, events and competitions for budding filmmakers.
On March 7th, the festival will close with a film-themed food festival on the streets of Randwick.
