Western Waves Western Australian Film Festival Lands in Northbridge Piazza

Ok, this Perth news is – as the young kids say – sweet as, bro.

From April 4th to 7th, there will be a wealth of live events and movies shot in WA shown in the Northbridge Piazza. Live music will accompany some of the finest films shot here in WA; namely – Red Dog, Top Knot Detective, Three Summers, and the hugely underappreciated and crazy great Rolf de Heer film Dingo.

I’ve been a huge supporter of Top Knot Detective and Three Summers, and highly recommend Red Dog and Dingo. Not only are these great films, but they’re free as well.

The City of Perth and Screenwest present

Western Waves Western Australian Film Festival

Northbridge Piazza

4-7 April 2019

Free admission

Feature Films – Short Films – Music – Art
The City of Perth, in conjunction with Screenwest, is proud to present Western Waves, a season of Western Australian feel-good feature length film, short film and musical performances.

There is something uniquely satisfying in seeing our stories and our landscape projected back at us from the screen. A theme that permeates many of the films selected is the nature of our striking landscape, not only as a backdrop but also as a protagonist, which in its harshness and beauty inspires many stories. The iconic humbling humour that has become a hallmark of our identity shines through in these delightful films, which represent only a slice of the diversity of Western Australia and the experiences of its people.
