Ghosthunter (15)

London Australian Film Festival

London Premiere


The London Australian Film Festival presents the London premiere of Ghosthunter, a remarkable documentary about one man’s struggle to come to terms with his past.


Shot over seven years, the film follows Jason King, a part-time ghostbuster desperately searching for answers about a childhood lost in a haze of half-memories.

What begins as a light-hearted portrait of a man helping others to banish bad spirits from their homes, soon unravels into a real-life horror story, as Jason is forced to confront his own ghosts, both past and present.


Documentarian Ben Lawrence has landed on something special for his feature debut, crafting a haunting and heart-breaking film with more twists and turns than a Hollywood blockbuster, and proving yet again that truth really is stranger than fiction.


"Ben Lawrence’s debut documentary is simply remarkable...a breathtaking achievement."

- Paul Byrnes (Sydney Morning Herald)


The student short film Hunt For Eagle Rock (Swinburne - d. Thomas Gruevski) will precede the main feature.

One of the best documentaries we’ve watched for years. So very surprising, moving and a must watch.

Go Back and Get it: Seeking Sankofa image

Go Back and Get it: Seeking Sankofa

Presented by CREAM Screen


In the Akan language of Ghana the word Sankofa acts as an everyday instruction to 'go back and get it', when something has been forgotten and left behind. But it is also a powerful word to trigger memories, both personal and collective, where the past can be found in the present. It has found many interpretations in film, literature, art and song, such as LA Rebellion film-maker Haile Gerima's 1993 film Sankofa. The Creating Interference network, in association with CREAM, explores the resonances of this potent word in a programme of contemporary and archival film and video works. Led by the artist Barby Asante and film-maker, curator and DJ Rabz Lansiquot, this evening of films and discussion rethinks Sankofa as a social, collaborative, transformative process of interruption and disruption.


The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) is recognised as the UK's leading centre for research in visual and media arts, design and music. We are based in the University of Westminster’s College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries.

Reaching Distance (15)

London Australian Film Festival

London Premiere + Q&A + drinks reception


The London Australian Film Festival is proud to present the London premiere of Reaching Distance, the feature debut of writer/director David Fairhurst and our opening gala screening.

.

Struggling in the aftermath of a car accident that killed his twin sister, Logan (Wade Briggs, Please Like Me) – a cynic with a photographic memory – wakes to find himself on the same night bus as Martin (Matt Day, Muriel’s Wedding), the banker he holds responsible for his sister’s death.

His vengeance is repeatedly thwarted by increasingly strange interactions with the other passengers, including an inquisitive nurse, her jealous boyfriend, two bickering teenagers and an unhinged homeless man. As things take a turn for the bizarre, the line between past and present fractures.


Taut and whip-smart, Groundhog Day & Memento have nothing on this mind-bending thriller, which pitches an unstable man against his own faulty memory and a graffiti-strewn bus full of (not quite) strangers. Low budget but high concept, this is Australian genre filmmaking at its finest.


Ticket price includes a free drink reception.

The student short film 2004: A Suburban Odyssey (VCA - d. Asher Karahasan) will precede the main feature.

"Punchy and compelling, Reaching Distance is a smart, inventive slice of local genre filmmaking." - FilmInk


FROM THE FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING TEAM

Keep a close eye on the director and lead actor – these guys are sensational & this is bound to be the springboard for two very exciting & successful careers.
