The Travelling Film Festival returns to Katherine in February 2019.
The TFF is Australia’s longest running travelling film festival and showcases Australian and international features, documentaries and short films in regional Australia presented by the Sydney Film Festival.
Founded by David Stratton in 1974, the TFF is committed to providing audiences in regional Australia with access to films they would otherwise not have the opportunity to see on the big screen.
Screening in the Katherine Cinema from February 8-10 there will be seven movies screened over the three days.
The festival is led by the opening night critically acclaimed Australian movie The Nightingale about a young female Irish convict in 1820s Van Diemen’s Land who enlists an Aboriginal tracker to help her chase a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family.
There are also films from a variety of countries including Japan, Lebanon, France and Polan
Ian from the Katherine Film Society said the festival represented the start of their 2019 film screenings.
“What a great way to start 2019,” he said.
