18 Oct Official Adelaide Film Festival Partner 2022
The Lane Vineyard is a proud partner of one of Australia’s most distinctive and innovative film festivals – the Adelaide Film Festival (AFF), which screens films you won’t see anywhere else.
Also known as the ‘friendly festival’, AFF is renowned for its warmth and egalitarian attitude, welcoming film industry guests from around Australia and the globe to an event where makers and audiences alike can enjoy and celebrate films together as a unified community.
Named as one one of the top 50 film festivals in the world by Variety, and winners of the 2021 Ruby Award for Best Festival, AFF has an international reputation as a film festival for ‘those in the know’.
The festival shows the very best in contemporary Australian and international feature films, documentaries, shorts, artist’s moving image and VR productions.
World premieres include screen projects made with the support of the AFF Investment Fund, which showcase South Australia itself as a centre of filmmaking excellence.
Film critic and AFF patron Margaret Pomeranz AM says: “what I really love about the festival experience in Adelaide is its intimacy. Filmgoers and film-lovers mingle on the streets, along with premiers, politicians and artists; conversations flow, everyone has an opinion, and the parties are fun.”
Three Jury Awards will be presented (Feature Fiction, Feature Documentary and Virtual Reality) and three Audience Awards (Best Feature, Best Documentary, and the Change Award, for positive social or environmental impact).
GUEST APPEARANCES ANNOUNCED.
The Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) has announced a list of new guests set to attend the Festival, including Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, who will be the guest of honour at a special event screening of TÁR – the film for which she received the Award for Best Actress at the recent Venice Film Festival.
The AFF Closing Night Gala will be attended by several actors from TALK TO ME – Alexandra Jensen, Otis Dhanji, Joe Bird, Marcus Johnson and Sonny Johnson – as well as directors Danny and Michael Philippou (aka RackaRacka).
Also confirmed to attend AFF are Rarriwuy Hick, the narrator of the film LUKU NGARRA, an Indigenous-funded documentary about the history and culture of Arnhem Land which is in the running for the AFF Change Award. Rarriwuy is known for her roles in Cleverman, Wentworth, Redfern Now and True Colours. The producer and presenter of LUKU NGARRA, Rev Dr Djinnyini Gondarra OAM, will attend the screening as well as the Djuku Mala dance company’s Baykali Ganambarr and Wakara Gondarra, who appear in the film.
Both TÁR and THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, which stars Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell, come direct from the Venice Film Festival. These films, along with MY POLICEMAN, starring Harry Styles and Emma Corin, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festivals, will be playing in special presentations at the Capri Theatre from Thursday October 20 – Saturday October 22.
