Lights! Camera! Parramatta!

Indie Gems Film Festival, Parramatta
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

This year's Indie Gems Film Festival will give you some food for thought.

The festival will include diverse and exciting screenings, informative workshops and film networking events as Indie Gems showcases filmmakers around the world, with a spotlight on Western Sydney. This year the Festival also launches a student short film competition for aspiring filmmakers in the local area who will create a short film on the theme of ‘Kindness’.

Well known comedian Akmal Saleh turns over a serious leaf with his opening night film Pharaoh Vs The Egyptians as he explores the processes of social networking in the Arab Spring that brought hundreds of thousands of Egyptians into Tahrir Square to fight for their freedom and overthrow a dictator after 30 years of oppressive rule.

The festival will draw to a close with a further exploration of social issues as Korean-Australian director Michael Kang presents his film Gossip Nation, which follows an unemployed Nigerian teenager who learns that gossip and innuendo can wreak havoc and turn her friends and family against each other. The film also explores life in a community of African immigrants and refugees who have settled in Sydney’s Blacktown.

Politically and socially charged, Indie Gems Film Festival will have you asking all the important questions in an intellectual three-day festival.

Parramatta-Film-Festival-3Indie Gems Film Festival will be between Thurs Sept 12 and Sat Sept 14 at the Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.
