Independent Film Festival from Canada & the US

By July 1, 2014 Events

The 9th Possible Worlds US and Canadian Film Festival will bring 18 new feature films to Event Cinemas George Street from 7-17 August. Selected titles will also screen in Canberra (20 August) and Perth (22-24 August).

Ricardo Trogi’s 1987 will open the Festival a day before it appears on Canadian screens. The semi-autobiographical French-language comedy charts the tumultuous summer of 1987 for 17-year-old Ricardo, and his hilarious attempts to get laid, get a job and get into bars. Set to a rocking 80s soundtrack, 1987 is a laugh-out-loud Quebec comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The 10-day festival includes complementary drink receptions, a genre movie trivia night and filmmaker Q&A’s. The audience is invited to vote for their favourite films in the World Movies Audience Award, while juries will announce the awards for Best American and Best Canadian Film on closing night. The full line-up will be revealed on Independence Day 4 July.
