Real to reel – Murwillumbah to host international Craft Film Festival this March
Those of us who aren’t involved in the hands-on aspect of craft making probably rarely consider the human relationship between the maker and materials – more often than not, it’s simply a process of identifying an appealing aesthetic, then making a purchase. Though, if you’re interested in digging deeper into wonderful world of crafts and making, don’t miss Murwillumbah’s Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival on Saturday March 21.
Proudly presented by the Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre, the Craft Film Festival will present a selection of short films celebrating craft and makers from around the world, extending our idea of what craft actually is. Held at the Regent Cinema in Murwillumbah, the family-friendly festival will see 28 short films screened across two separate 90-minute sessions, which will explore all facets of making, from the traditional and contemporary, to the heart-warming and subversive.
Featuring music videos, hand-crafted animations and feature films from Australia, this eclectic program is an opportunity to discover what it is to be human and make, and see how our relationship with materials transpires throughout the world today. The Craft Film Festival’s first screening will begin at 11:30 am with an interval before the second screening at 2:30 pm. Attendees can also visit the Makers & Finders Market in the nearby M-Arts Precinct taking place on the same day. Tickets are $20 for each session or $35 for both.
