The film ‘Unwanted Friend’ was shot by Metro Screen Certificate IV in Screen and Media Graduate Simon Koloadin.
After 10 days, 60,000 views and 40, 000 votes, Sydney-based filmmaker, Matt Levett, and his quirky comedy ‘Unwanted Friend’, has snared the 16th finalist position in the 2012 Movie Extra Tropfest, beating out nine other hopefuls. The seven minute short is Levett’s first foray into the Tropfest competition, but he is a recognizable face on Australian TV, having starred in ‘Home and Away’ and ‘Winners and Losers’.
Continuing with tradition, Movie Extra Tropfest is a free, public event screened live on Sunday 19th February to an anticipated audience of 150,000 at free outdoor public events across Australia and New Zealand, where it takes place for the first time this year in New Plymouth. It is also televised live to hundreds of thousands more on Subscription TV channel Movie Extra.
