October Update

It’s been a fascinating month of movie related activities for me.

On Saturday 1st October I reviewed The Magnificent Seven and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children on Weekend Sunrise…

And a week later Deepwater Horizon and Girl on the Train…

I confirmed my involvement in several panels at the Australian International Movie Convention (AIMC) on the Gold Coast including Hacksaw Ridge…

And Thor Ragnarok…

I also hosted an event in honour of Saroo and Sue Brierly about whom the film Lion has been made.

I also presented Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton with an award for their contribution to Australian Film.

And hosted the AIMC Gala Dinner where Kiwi Director Taika Waititi came along as Sam Neil’s date as Sam accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award.

It was an honour to be part of such a great week of film events and great to get a sneak peek at the coming year’s films.
