It’s on again!  The AGL Perfect Light Film Festival will be held in Broken Hill from Friday 1 November to Sunday 3 November. The entire Festival program is FREE to attend.

The Festival kicks off with a launch at Silver City Cinema on the Friday night featuring the NSW premiere screening of the Australian made documentary SUZI Q.  SUZI Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock’n’roll when she broke through around the world in 1973.  The screening will be followed by drinks and nibbles and a Q&A with the films Executive Producer Adam La Rosa.  This is open to everyone and is free to attend.

Then on the Saturday, November 2, more than 1,500 people are expected to attend the festival’s FREE public, outdoor screening in Sturt Park.  Bring a rug, some friends and enjoy 15 short films all judged live on the night by a panel of celebrity judges, awarding monetary prizes.  The Festival will feature Broken Hill Primary School films and the announcement and screening of the Broken Hill Art Exchange AGL Desert Equinox winners! A special twilight market will also join the Festival in Sturt Park on the night.  Celebrity judges include NITV Editor Rhanna Collins, The Living Room’s Barry du Bois and another special judge to be announced shortly!

Film festivals provide a great platform for emerging filmmakers and actors to showcase their work to the public and to industry heavyweights in a fun and relaxed environment. And what better setting than Broken Hill? It has such a rich and iconic film history and is an integral part of Australias film culture and identity. We hope to support emerging filmmakers and local talent to become a part of this history by shining light on their work.’ – Steve Bastoni, Festival Founder
