A big week ahead in the ACT as the Canberra International Film Festival kicks off with a plethora of great films across three different venues all screening over the next 10 days or so. I have a pretty hectic festival schedule taking in 20 flicks and you can see the full details here. If any bloggers are heading to Canberra and fancy meeting up then drop me a line. Details in the contact section above.
If nothing takes your fancy at the festival then the following are all opening in the ACT this week:-
Bachelorette – Some say this is better than Bridesmaids, see what Sam over at An Online Universe thinks. Playing at Hoyts.
End Of Watch– David Ayer the writer of Training Day and Fast and Furious takes the helm of this gritty drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peria as two hotshot cops who go up against the local cartel. Playing at Hoyts.
Housos v Authority – I am so sick of seeing this trailer which seems to be playing in in front of every film I sit down for. Apparently this is a satirical look at residents of an Australian Housing Commission project. Not sure I have been in Australia long enough to get this, even if that does make me un-Australian. Playing at Hoyts (where else….)
You Will Be My Son – A French tale of family, friendship and conflict all wrapped in a vineyard. Don’t know too much about this one, but the trailer looks interesting. Not sure I will get round to it though. Playing at Manuka.
