Less than two weeks to go. Tickets are on sale. Best selection of films ever. Be there!

Our programmer Carolyn Choa has worked her magic and found filmic connections for our competition screenings. This year’s themes: Together, Apart, Memories and Loss.

Clare Valley Film Festival, where the world really does come to the Clare Valley.

Wednesday Highlights

The winner of Rome Independent Film Festival, Matilde, and a documentary, England’s Green and Pleasant Land, based on the play Oi For England that sprang from the punk Britain, directed by Antonia Bird who died recently.

Thursday Highlights

A selection of films from our partner International Short Film Festival Cyprus, plus the historical drama, Telegram Man, starring Jack Thompson, Gary Sweet and Sigrid Thornton.

Friday Night Is Comedy Night

Curated by Rob George. We have a dozen shorts, some in competition, some especially invited to tickle your fancy. Including the multi award winner Conversation Piece with Celia Imrie.

Saturday is a full day of screenings, masterclasses, pods and of course the ever popular Awards Gala.

Hmmm, highlights, well, Edmond Was A Donkey, winner at Regensburg Short Film Week, Rob George’s very popular screenwriting class, which we now present in conjunction with the Clare Writer’s Festival. Tango masterclass which forms part of the build up to the Asha film project supported by Country Arts SA (more in 2014), but the centre piece is the Awards Gala with filmed clips from all our winners and wine from the ineffable Jeffrey Grosset.
