Leaving Allen Street Interview with Filmmaker Katrina Channells – Melbourne Documentary Film Festival

Ah! The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival always brings wonderful films to my inbox, with delights like Leaving Allen Street for me to watch and engage with. This lovely documentary is directed by Katrina Channells, of We Are Yarn, and it follows the residents of an institution for the intellectually disabled in Melbourne as they move from their old home to a new, custom built facility that will bring them new independence.

This is a genuine treat of a film and you should definitely check it out when the festival kicks off on June 30th, wrapping up online on the 15th of July.
