Sydney Film Festival’s 2017 touring program, the Travelling Film Festival, returns to Tower Cinemas, Newcastle 23-25 June, with a selection of nine local and international award winning and festival favourite films.

“Seven features and two documentaries will premiere in Newcastle, opening with Australia’s first Muslim comedy Ali’s Wedding by award winning television director Jeffrey Walker,” said Travelling Film Festival Manager Karina Libbey. “Closing the Festival is new documentary We Don’t Need a Map, from acclaimed Australian First Nation filmmaker Warwick Thornton. The film will be fresh from opening the Sydney Film Festival and competing in the Official Competition for the $60,000 Sydney Film Prize,” she said.

“The Festival is thrilled to be returning to Newcastle right off the back of a huge Sydney Film Festival June 7- 18. Of course, we’ll be bringing all the hot picks from the Festival with us, Newcastle being the first centre in regional Australia to see these films,” she said.
