Travelling Film Festival

Bunker down for some quality Wet season screenings as Sydney Film Festival’s annual regional tour – the Travelling Film Festival (TFF) – returns this February.

Complementing Darwin Film Society’s indoor season of Flix in the Wet, the TFF brings a host of internationally acclaimed films to Top End screens.

Opening the festival is the winner of the Cannes Golden Eye Documentary Prize, Faces Places, a captivating and heartwarming film documenting legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda and iconic Instagram photographer JR’s journey as they travel through rural France.

Catch the winner of the 2017 Sydney Film Prize, On Body and Soul; the latest masterpiece by Cannes Palme d’Or winner Michael Haneke, Happy End, as he explores generational differences in attitudes towards life and the world; and the moving story of a reindeer herding Sámi girl who severs ties with her family and her culture in Sami Blood.

Armie Hammer shines with his performances in Call Me by Your Name, a sensual and transcendent story of first love, and stars alongside Geoffrey Rush in Final Portrait, an amusing comedy about artist Alberto Giacometti.

Already a huge hit with Darwin audiences at the 2017 Darwin International Film Festival, Loving Vincent, the world’s first fully painted feature film explores the life of Vincent Van Gogh. Critically acclaimed The Florida Project and compassionate tale A Fantastic Woman are also ones to see.

The TFF Katherine screens Faces Places, Call Me by Your Name, Sami Blood and The Florida Project; as well as The Other Side of Hope, a heartwarming tale of friendship; and the winner of the 2017 Cannes Palme d’Or The Square.
