Pacific Island filmfest part of showcase


Petero Civoniceva, a State of Origin legend, is spearheading efforts to showcase the best Pacific filmmakers at the inaugural Pacific Island Filmfest (PIFF) on the Sunshine Coast on 21 June. The PIFF, presented by Film Fiji, is part of the Showdown Showfest film festival weekend (21-22 June), celebrating the burgeoning film industry on the Sunshine Coast.
Civoniceva, serving as Ambassador for the Pacific Islands Film Fest, expressed his excitement about collaborating with Film Fiji and Showdown.
“As a proud Pacific Islander (Fiji-born) and Queenslander, I see this as a wonderful collaboration that highlights the talented storytellers of our regions,” Civoniceva said.
Showdown co-founder Jon Coghill expressed his admiration for Civoniceva’s involvement.
“I spent years watching Petero dominate the Blues. Despite being a great sporting legend, he’s extremely down to earth and passionate about furthering opportunities for Pacific Islanders,” Coghill said. “The Showdown team is humbled and honoured to be working with him.”
