Local film festival goes global

The Sunshine Coast’s best film and TV talent will be on show at the Showdown Showfest film festival in June.

The two-day red-carpet event on June 21 and 22 will premiere six winning short films, locally-produced by the Sunny Coast Showdown team and presented by Bendigo Bank Community Bank, as they compete for the festival’s prize gong, the Gold Yewwy award.

The event will also premiere director Chris Sun’s acclaimed comedy short film, Loophole, starring Hugh Parker (The Family Law, Elvis) and Libby Munro (Troppo, Wild Woman) and the Hello Sunshine ‘Light, Camera, Lunch!’ story-telling event will host Showdown co-founders and Showdown Winner Emma Morgan.

The Showdown Showfest film festival is an offshoot of the Sunny Coast Showdown–a not-for-profit film event that provides mentoring, funding and support to local filmmakers and helps them produce their film and TV projects. It also provides training and opportunity for more than 100 local cast and crew.

Showdown productions this year attracted some of Australia’s best actors in Darren Gilshenan (Harrow, Colin from Accounts), Rhys Muldoon (House Husbands, Bay of Fires), Kate Atkinson (Wentworth, Underbelly), Claire Weller Price (Boy Swallows Universe, Apples Never Fall), James Patrick Reed (Blue Heelers, Mission: Impossible) and Rory Williamson (Home and Away, Paper Giants).

Lilliana Bowrey (Netflix’s hit series, Surviving Summer) is being touted as the next-big-thing and plays the lead in the romantic thriller, Lured.
