Interview with Sarah McLeod

Sarah McLeod is a passionate woman. She’s Aussie rock royalty, front person of The Superjesus and a powerful solo performer. In this interview she talks about her two loves, one new and one gone; her piano and her dog. One found, and one lost, during lockdown.

Celebrating 21 years, the Flickerfest short-film festival will screen at Bangalow A&I Hall January 20 – 22.

Byron Shire is the first stop in a 37-venue national tour.

Highlights of Flickerfest’s Byron program include two short films recently shortlisted for the 2012 Academy Awards – the moving and humorous I Could Be Your Grandmother from France and the intimate and heartfelt drama Raju from Germany. Flickerfest will also present a ‘Best Of’ Australian shorts selection, the Byron All Shorts 2012 – Northern Rivers Short Film Competition and the Flickerlab workshop. Byron will host the only presentation of this workshop outside Sydney.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
