Tickets to the Travelling Film Festival visiting Young from July 29 to 31 are now on sale.

A series of films will be shown at the Southern Cross Cinema, offering something for everyone.

On Friday, July 29 three teen besties will go to extremes to attend six music festivals in 6 Festivals. This uplifting film by Macario De Souza (Bra Boys) features some of Australia’s hottest acts performing live.

Saturday, July 30 will feature four movies including:

  • Everybody’s Oma is a film by NSW filmmaker Jason van Genderen who accidentally turned his mother into an online celebrity with his obsession for making home videos about her.
  • Voice Activated tells the story of passionate florist and deliveryman, Trent (Aleks Mikic, Secret City) as he finds his voice when forced to cooperate with a voice activated car. This short film features Becky Lucas and Sam Neill.
  • Huda’s Salon is an edge-of-your-seat thriller from two-time International Oscar nominee Hany Abu-Assad (Omar, SFF 2014) about an innocent Palestinian woman who becomes trapped in blackmail and deceit.
  • The haunting US film, The Humans features Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer and Steven Yeun. It strikes an uncanny balance between family dramedy and subtle psychological horror.

Sunday, July 31 rounds out the weekend event with:

  • My Old School, a mind-blowing stranger-than-fiction story for ‘90s Glasgow with Scotland’s Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) bringing this unbelievably twisted tale to life.
  • Donkey is a short film with three Anangu women of different generations telling the story of how donkeys came to be valuable friends and helpers in the desert communities in the APY lands of northern South Australia.
  • The Quiet Girl, Colm Bairead’s beautifully realised family drama, tells the story of a lonely Irish girl who discovers a life she never believed possible. (International Jury Prize, Generation Kplus, Berlinale 2022).
  • Where Is Anne Frank is a new animated feature from Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir). It is a visionary retelling of the Anne Frank story connecting her legacy to oppression in the modern world.

The longest running Aussie film festival, TTF showcases Australian and International short films, features and documentaries in regional communities.

TFF currently tours to over 20 locations each year.
