CinefestOZ sets the agenda, with Richard Roxburgh as Jury Chair

Boutique West Australia Film Festival, CinefestOZ, announced its 2022 program of 270 film screenings and events.

In its 15th edition, the six day Target Film Festival will take place from 23rd to 28th August 2022 across 35 locations in South West Western Australia, known as a world class wine region.

Veteran actor Richard Roxburgh (‘Moulin Rouge’, ‘Elvis’) has been appointed to chair the jury that awards an A$100,000 (US$65,000) film award for Best Australian Feature Film or Full-length Documentary.

Competing for the award is director Gracie Otto’s debut feature film Seriously Red (which premiered at SXSW earlier this year), which stars the film’s writer, Krew Boylan, as a Dolly Parton impersonator. It also stars Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.

The competition also includes: the world premiere of “Transfusion”, the directorial debut of actor Matt Nable (“The Dry”, “The Twelve”) and Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) as a man trying to bond with his son after a devastating loss; ‘Sweet As’, writer-director Jub Clerc’s debut feature film set in the Pilbara region of Western Australia; and “Of An Age” by Macedonian-born, Australian-based writer-director Goran Stolevski (“Won’t Be Alone”). The film, which also screens at the Melbourne Festival, is set in the summer of 1999 as an intense romance blossoms between a young Serbian ballroom dancer and his dance partner’s older brother.

“An exceptional program appeals to a diverse audience – from funny comedy and gripping drama to thought-provoking documentaries on current social and environmental issues, stories showcasing our indigenous people and films that explore pop culture and music,” said CinefestOZ President Margaret Buswell.
