The Capricorn Film Festival will return to Central Queensland this year in it’s new home of Yeppoon.
The Capricorn Film Festival will run from November 23 – 24 where guest judges and industry professionals will be visiting Yeppoon to lend their expertise to the event, held at the Yeppoon Town Hall.
The festival will open with acclaimed feature film The Pretend One – a coming-of-age drama about Charlie and Hugo who are aged in their 20’s and live in a rural town in Central Queensland. They’ve been best friends their whole lives. There’s just one thing, Hugo is Charlie’s imaginary friend.
The Pretend One stars Australian film industry legend David Field, who will be in attendance for a special Q&A after the screening. David’s roles include Two Hands, Chopper, Oyster Farmer and Mystery Road.
Saturday will include masterclasses and panel discussions prior to the flagship event, the CAPS Short Film Festival.
“We are very excited to see what our young filmmakers have created this year’s film festival, it really show’s that the organisation’s hard work is paying off, as a career in filmmaking can be achieved in our region.” said festival founder, Luke Graham.
The Capricorn Film Festival will draw some forty filmmakers from Northern Queensland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne including our regional attendees, all touching down in Yeppoon to meet and network, though waiting in anticipation for the winner of each category of the 2018 Capricorn Film Festival.
The Capricorn Film Festival opens on Friday 23rd and finishes the following night at the Yeppoon Town Hall.
