Bangalow Film Festival is thrilled to announce its third annual festival program, set to take place in multiple locations across beautiful Bangalow from 12–21 January 2023.
Premiering award-winning films from across the globe, the 2023 program offers a wide range of diverse and inclusive screenings, along with an immersive program of art exhibitions, panels, music and plenty more.
Featuring a lineup of over 20 acclaimed films, including a world premiere, BFF’s 2023 program is its biggest yet. Film buffs can settle in for exclusive premieres of critically acclaimed award-winning feature films, brilliant documentaries, and beloved classics, plus special guest encounters and surprise events.
The first five films were revealed earlier this month, including the Australian premieres of documentaries Wade In The Water and All The Beauty and the Bloodshed, along with a special 30th anniversary 4K screening of beloved Australian classic Strictly Ballroom, the world premiere of local documentary The Last Violin and critically acclaimed French drama Rodeo.
Now it’s time to take a seat and have the popcorn ready as we reveal the newest additions to the Bangalow Film Festival 2023 lineup!
Get your palette around the Australian premiere of Living Wine, a documentary following four natural wine artisans who forge their own path of new sustainable and regenerative practices in the world of viticulture. Another Australian premiere is Descending the Mountain, an intriguing documentary following the ground-breaking experiment of a neuroscientist and a zen master in the Swiss mountains, combining meditation and magic mushrooms to examine the nature of consciousness. This segues nicely into the regional premiere of The Mushroom Speaks which journeys into the realm of fungi and the radical changes that fungi offer to the world.
Directed by Pan Nalin is the sincere fable and multiple award-winning Last Film Show, which tells a tale of inspiration and hope in the story of Samay, a nine-year-old Indian boy and his love for films. Another remarkable feature film is Broker (directed by Palme d’Or winner Hirokazu Kore-era), a light-hearted, unexpected and moving film about an abandoned baby and an unlikely family unit on the run.
Stay tuned for all things Bangalow Film Festival 2023, as there are many more program additions to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
