Gold Coast Film Festival 2014 program unveiled

Gold Coast Film Festival 2014 program unveiled

THE program for this year’s Gold Coast Film Festival will feature 40 films from a diverse selection of local and international filmmakers, including three world premieres, 15 Australian premieres and four Queensland premieres.  

GCFF Festival Director Kylie Pascoe said this year’s program will diversify and expand on the previous festival offerings.

“As part of our film festival identity, it’s important for us to continue to work with independent filmmakers and showcase and support both local and Australian made films,” she said.

Ms Pascoe said the critically acclaimed and highly anticipated The Grand Budapest Hotel from award winning auteur Wes Anderson has been announced as the opening night flick.

“I am also very excited to say this year we are hosting the Queensland premiere of the surfing documentary Missing starring Mick Fanning who is no doubt the hottest name on the surfing community’s lips. Missing is made by master surf filmmaker Taylor Steele who shot down the barrel – through the surf barrels – at the Gold Coast and other surfing destinations across the global seas,” she said.

The GCFF will also continue to embrace its pop cultural heritage with a continued cultural partnership with the Supanova Pop Cultural Expo.

“We are excited to be welcoming some big Supanova stars who have films in this year’s GCFF including John DiMaggio for I Know that Voice, a collection of the world’s leading voice actors giving insight into their crafts,” she said.

The GCFF will be held over 10 days from April 3 – April 13 2014 at Birch, Carroll and Coyle Cinemas plus other venues across the Gold Coast.
