Fell, the debut feature from short film veteran Kasimir Burgess, has the potential to shake up the Australian film landscape. Not only is the film having its world premiere in competition at Sydney Film Festival, it is being distributed online in an on-demand service immediately after its premiere at the festival.
John Michael McDonagh’s second feature, Calvary, has a lot to live up to. The Guard, his debut, is the highest grossing Irish film ever but rather than make the same film twice, he’s boldly ventured into a dark and brooding world of faith, disillusionment and literature. We caught up with him at Sydney Film Festival.
Nashen Moodley is the Festival Director of Sydney Film Festival and has held that role since 2012. This year marks his third festival at the helm. We caught up with him this week in the lead-up to Opening Night on the 4th of June.
