CANBERRA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
The Australian premiere of Canberra film Locks of Love on October 30 will be a Canberra International Film
Festival special event.
Film search yields great comedies
Now in its 18th year the Canberra
International Film Festival has been
extended from a 12-day festival to a
bold 18 days of captivating screenings.
The festival's artistic director Lex
Lindsay said Canberrans were
enthusiastic cinema lovers and the
expansion of the timetable had been
planned for several seasons.
"We used last year as a case study
and did a lot of research," he said.
"Our audience wanted to see more
films in the festival. This new schedule
gives audiences three weekends and
more time to get to what they want to

Locks of Love created in Canberra
will premiere as part of the festival.
Hundreds of ACT cast and crew
developed a gorgeous anthology of
short films that consider the many
iterations of love.
Mr Lindsay said the documentary
Love Marriage in Kabul also included
a Canberra connection with ACT
journalist Virginia Haussegger playing
a vital role in the story.
The festival will have all the strong
gritty independent film that fans
anticipate but Mr Lindsay said he had
delivered on his promise to source a
good dose of comedy too.
"The stuff that gets awards and
tends to be lauded is the films that
tackle big heavy topics and provide
powerful emotional experiences," he
said. "We took the time to honour
comedies. I had to go searching far and
wide for great comedies and I
managed to uncover some great films
from Eastern Europe."
For memorable laughs look out for
Kebab and Horoscope from Poland,
and Afterlife from Hungary.
