IN ITS 8TH YEAR POSSIBLE WORLDS BECOMES
A FESTIVAL OF AMERICAN & CANADIAN CINEMA
After seven years of showcasing the best films from Canada in Australia, Possible Worlds is thrilled to extend the scope of the Festival in 2013 to include American Films.
When we launched the Festival in 2006, very few Canadian films were almost invisible in Sydney but today, Canadian cinema has a much higher profile in Australia. Possible Worlds played a modest role, but this excellent result is mostly due to the success of films such as Monsieur Lazhar or Incendies and the work of talented directors such as Sarah Polley, Guy Maddin and Xavier Dolan.
It's time for the Festival to grow, and we are excited to widen the program to include independent American films. Each year our team travels around the world to meet with filmmakers and attend film festivals. Each year we are disappointed to see that some of our favourite American films remain unseen in Australia. This year, Possible Worlds will celebrate films from both Canada and the US with the hospitality, inclusivity and festivity that have become our trademark. Join us from August 8th!
