Set to coincide with the climax of the Commonwealth Games that are currently taking place in Queensland, Australia, The Festival of Commonwealth Film (FCF) will open on April 14th and close the following day.
The festival, which is fully open to the public, will screen seven feature films and a selection of short films from across the region.
There will be Q&A sessions after most of the films, which include Rungano Nyoni’s BAFTA-winning I Am Not a Witch, also nominated for an Oscar after winning rave reviews last year. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is a definite highlight and a great chance to catch one of the best films of the last few years.
