Westralia Day At The Backlot

July 10, 2021

Special Events | 2021 | Westralia Day At The Backlot

This collection includes local documentaries, shorts, experimentals and web-series and opens a whole vista to local screen production.

Independent filmmaking in WA is moving along in leaps and bounds with some of the most distinctive works in the country produced within our borders. Like the unique music produced in WA, we feel it’s got something to do with the quality of the light, the understanding of scale and the personal relationships screen artists have with each other and their community. The works included in this day reflect all these influences and demonstrates the enormous creative strength and collaborations within the local independent screen industry.

Saturday 10 July at The Backlot Perth!
