Miss the movies? Travelling Film Festival begins Friday – Bundaberg Now

Traveling Film Festival Film Stage Mother.

The Traveling Film Festival (TFF) returns to Bundaberg this Friday with six acclaimed feature films and four exceptional Australian shorts.

Central to the program is The Perfect Candidate, directed by Saudi Arabia’s first female director Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda – a TFF favorite), an insightful look at the changing role of women in Saudi Arabia.

Other stories from around the world include: Cannes Film Festival Selection Litigante, a thoughtful and provocative family drama; the Finnish-Chinese comedy, Master Cheng, by director Mika Kaurismäki, a delightful story of cultural acceptance and culinary escape, and; The award-winning French film Only the Animals by director Dominik Moll, an exciting, playful mystery thriller.

Also on show is the audience favorite from the latest Huskisson TFF, Stage Mother, a star-studded comedy in which Jacki Weaver, as the conservative church choir director, takes over the failed drag bar of her deceased son in brilliant form.

And to top it off, Kuessipan, a cinematic gem of the Toronto Film Festival, is based on the acclaimed Canadian novel by Naomi Fontaine, a poignant story about two girls growing up in a rural Quebec Innu community.

Sanam Rodrigues, manager of the Traveling Film Festival, said not even a pandemic could stop the film festival from returning to Bundaberg.

“Despite the adversity, given these strange times and the resulting cancellations of some of our other regional festivals, we are excited to restart TFF Queensland with Bundaberg this year,” said Sanam.

“Our customers in Bundaberg will see the local premieres of all extraordinary films on our program and see them on the big screen.

“We hope you enjoy the program and we wish you a safe and fun festival.”
