Very privileged to be at Day 2 of the Arts Access Meeting Places Conference at the Australian National Art Gallery listening to a panel discussion about leadership, identity and pride. Image below of the corner of a conference space including a woman’s face on a large screen on a stage behind a row of seated speakers, a large urn and some large sculptures of people. The backs of audience members are in the foreground.
We are thrilled to announce that 'My Name is Petya' has been included in the 12th WAFF Public Program. A beautifully shot film from Russia, 'My Name is Petya' reminds us that love can arrive at the most surprising times and ways in our lives. Image below of a very young boy in front of a window with drawings on it.

Today we'd like to introduce another film from our Public Program - 'Venus'. Through this compelling documentary from the UK a female drag queen living with disability shares her experience of the two worlds she lives in.
Today we're pleased to introduce another film from our Public Program in our ongoing online 'launch'! In the spectacular action film, 'Just Go', Just meets Ieva on the doorstep of the house they both live in. They start a conversation that's interrupted by two thieves who steal Ieva's bag. In the blink of an eye Just decides to follow the thieves to retrieve Ieva's bag and win her heart. A must see, this Academy Award nominated short film from Latvia, will get your adrenaline pumping! Image of a blond man dressed in black on a skateboard skitching on a car.
We'd like to thank Curious Works and Creatability for the opportunity to include 'Prone to the Drone' in the 12th WAFF Public Program. The image below, of a man with a round face in a black and sparkling silver wrestling mask, is from this film. This is the offical image of 12th WAFF. 'Prone to the Drone' is compelling story, sensitively directed, of a socially isolated man who finds acceptance through a surprising series of events.
We’re thrilled be at AFTRS for the panel discussion about authentic casting organised by Accessible Arts this morning.
Thanks to the British Council and Creative Europe Desk UK for the networking event on Tower Belle! Great fun and great conversations! at Encounters Film Festival, Bristol.
