Gus is Getting Around!
"Gus" has been invited to screen in the Optus Flix in the Stix Tour, regional New South Wales! February 3 - March 17.
Optus Flix in the Stix comprises a collection of award winning short films produced both here in Australia and abroad and will tour regional New South Wales, visiting Dubbo, Orange, Bowral, Canberra, Albury, Wagga Wagga, Tamworth and Armidale.
Screening times have been posted on the website.
"Gus" has also been invited to screen at the International Family Film Festival, Hollywood! March 21-25.
The International Family Film Festival (IFFF) strives to “celebrate the world” and respect mankind’s fundamental similarities and differences and share the myriad manifestations of the human condition. The IFFF will be held at Raleigh Studios in the heart of Hollywood.
Screening times will be posted on the website closer to the event.
“Gus” will be featured in the next issue of Time Off Magazine, a weekly street press publication in Brisbane, which will run the article tomorrow (Wednesday 25 January). Be sure to check your streets for a copy, or check it out online.
“Gus” is soon to be added to the Screen Australia database. The information Screen Australia (SA) collects is for the benefit of the whole industry. It is used to promote projects through their Find-A-Film Database and selected marketing catalogues, answer enquiries from a range of clients including buyers and festival directors, assist in data collection for the research section of the SA website, Industry Statistics, Strategy and Research and the SA’s annual production survey, and understand changing trends in the production, release and performance of films.
Honeydew Studios has recently signed a distribution deal with the Flickerfest Distribution Bureau, who will market, distribute and license “Gus” throughout the world. Flickerfest's catalogue is not extensive but is based on selecting the best short films produced in Australia each year and the best international short films screened at their festival to distribute to international and Australian buyers. As they only represent a small number of films they are able to give their filmmakers and their buyers great attention to their individual needs and to ensure that their catalogue is based on quality and excellence within the short film genre.
Remember, “Gus” is eligible for the ING Direct Flick Pick Award (Location: Bondi, Session: Best of Australian 2) and the Inside Film (IF) Awards, so please show your support for the flatulent little “cave” boy and vote!
Until next time... keep creating!
