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…

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.

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.
