Courtney (Tina Fielding) meets Diamond (Gary Cooper)

Sparkles Short Film Interview with Tina Fielding, Jacqueline Pelczar, Cody Greenwood

Featured comfortably on my Best Australian Films of 2020 list is the joyous WA made short film, Sparkles. Written, co-produced, and starring Tina Fielding, this wonderful film follows Courtney, a thirty-something Down Syndrome woman leaving her country home to find a new life in the city. On the way, she encounters Diamond, a drag queen, and the two spark a beautiful relationship.

Directed by Jacqueline Pelczar and produced by Cody Greenwood, Sparkles recently had its World Premiere at Flickerfest Film Festival. I got to catch up with Tina, Jacqueline, and Cody, to talk about the making of Sparkles and the process of making a short film.
