hillside hits its stride

I had the great pleasure of opening the 6th Hillside Film Festival at the Cameo last Saturday. The event was a sell out, the third year in a row, and viewers saw some great short films from young filmmakers across Victoria.

I was pleased to be able to award the Open Channel Best Under 18 Film Award to Isaebella Doherty for her film Swan.

Isaebella shows a maturity well beyond her years and her film Swan was beautiful. I caught up with Isaebella and film festival director, Amy-Jo Jory at Earthly Pleasures after the screening.

Hillside Film Festival is proudly supported by the Shire of Yarra Ranges and provides young filmmakers with a venue to screen their films. Brett Ludeman's film Zero Dollars won the Burrinja Music Video Award whilst Christina Tester's film Summon the Sun won the Upwey Community Bank Best Film Award.
