    The Worlds Best Film Director Joshua Belinfante Interview - The Curb

    Thanks to the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, I get to interview wonderful people from all around the world who have fascinating stories to tell and beautiful films to share. In this interview, I chat with director Joshua Belinfante who is one such person, and whose film, The World's Best Film, is full of likeminded folks. It's a gentle, kind film that encourages you to look for the positive in the world.

    Small Island Big Song - An Oceanic Songline Director Tim Cole Interview - Melbourne Documentary Film Festival

    Small Island Big Song - An Oceanic Songline Director Tim Cole Interview - Melbourne Documentary Film Festival

    Small Island Big Song - An Oceanic Songline is a collaborative film, made over 16 Island nations from the Pacific & Indian Oceans, following musicians from Madagascar, to Taiwan, to Zendath Kes, to the Torres Strait and Easter Island, all singing songs about cultural preservation and the need for environmental awareness. This is a joyous, glorious film full of life and hope, all the while informing the viewer about the legacy of these cultures, and their relationship to the oceans.



    I caught up with director Tim Cole to have an in depth discussion about his work, exploring the role of the director, the music, and nature, in the filmmaking process. This is a deep discussion, one that I feel enriches the text of the film, and reminds the need for collaboration when it comes to filmmaking.

    Keyboard Fantasies Director Posy Dixon Interview - The Curb

    Keyboard Fantasies Director Posy Dixon Interview - The Curb

    Oh this film, Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story is a delight. A wonderful gem of a film about musician Glenn Copeland and his album, Keyboard Fantasies, and the impact it had on those who discovered it. I caught up with director Posy Dixon to talk about how she made the film, the celebration of LGBTIQ+ elders, the importance of music in ones life, and the value of recognising our own histories.

    Keyboard Fantasies is screening at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival from June 30th til July 15th, and you'd be treating yourself to a glorious cinematic experience by watching this one.

    Music used in this episode:

    Ever New by Beverly Glenn-Copeland

    Leaving Allen Street Interview with Filmmaker Katrina Channells - The Curb

    Ah! The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival always brings wonderful films to my inbox, with delights like Leaving Allen Street for me to watch and engage with. This lovely documentary is directed by Katrina Channells, of We Are Yarn, and it follows the residents of an institution for the intellectually disabled in Melbourne as they move from their old home to a new, custom built facility that will bring them new independence.



    This is a genuine treat of a film and you should definitely check it out when the festival kicks off on June 30th, wrapping up online on the 15th of July.
