THE Travelling Film Festival returns to the Mid North Coast this weekend.
A program of award winning and must-see films are screening at Majestic Cinemas in Port Macquarie from October 21 to 23.
Not to be missed is Zach's Ceremony, an Australian documentary nominated for the ‘Documentary Australia Foundation Award’.
It shows us that growing up isn't easy. Added pressures of racism and city living is a long way from his father's community in Far North Queensland. An Aboriginal activist, leader and actor, Alec is a devoted dad, but his strict parenting inevitably causes friction.
Shot over six years, this is a remarkable portrait of a young man struggling with identity and his father's expectations, as he heads towards adulthood.
Other films on the list include Spanish film ‘The Olive Tree’, a Berlin film festival hit
‘Sing Street’, and winner of a Cannes Directors' Fortnight prize, four Césars and an Oscar nomination, ‘Mustang’ is a Turkish gem.
