Sunset Film Jam

Fri 15 November

Go Pro Film Makers

Sunset Film Festival

Sunset Film Festival

In 2013 the Kirra Kite Festival introduces an exciting new concept to its weekend of activities in November—‘Sunset Film Jam’ a Film Festival centering on Point of View camera work. Point of View cameras are ‘the world’s most versatile camera’. They are tiny. Small enough to be attached to a bird, strapped to a base jumper’s helmet or swallowed by a shark. They have revolutionised the way we see our world and created a new breed of filmmakers who are as crazy as they are daring. Although they are frequently associated with extreme sports—the beauty of them is that you feel you are right there in the middle of the action—the sky is the limit with this technology, and they are capable of capturing beauty and serenity with equal clarity.

The Sunset Film Jam is happening on Friday 15th November; in Roughton Park, on the Kirra foreshore. The theme for this inaugural event will be Freedom… ‘Freedom to travel, freedom to surf, what does freedom mean to you?’ There will be a competition running for local filmmakers in the lead-up to the event and the winning films will be shown on the night. This will be a unique film festival for the Southern Gold Coast, presenting a hand picked variety of national and international films suitable for family entertainment.

6.30–9.30pm
