THREE SUMMERS – the WA-filmed romantic comedy written and directed by Ben Elton – is set to launch the inaugural City of Perth Western Waves – WA Film Festival at the Northbridge Piazza from 4 April to 7 April.
Supported by Screenwest, the free film showcase boasts a range of WA-made family-friendly films and shorts.
Along with THREE SUMMERS, the opening night program will feature recently digitised heritage footage from the State Library of WA archives.
The Friday and Saturday evening programs will screen a number of short films and feature RED DOG while the closing night’s film –DINGO– an WA classic will be accompanied by Jazz songstress Libby Hammer in a pre-show performance.
City of Perth Chair Commissioner Eric Lumsden said he hopes a local film showcase becomes a regular part of the City’s arts and entertainment calendar.
“The City of Perth is proud to support opportunities for the community to experience locally-produced films and shorts on the big screen,” Chair Commissioner Lumsden said.
“Showcasing these films at the Northbridge Piazza is a great way to support local filmmakers.”
Screenwest CEO Willie Rowe is delighted to see WA films and shorts being championed.
“WA creatives have been capturing amazing stories on film for generations and we are thrilled to see this local showcase activating our inner-city.”
