Stars have descended on Bunbury for CinefestOZ 2018 with the film festival off to a flying start with the premiere screening of Backtrack Boys at Grand Cinemas last night.

Excitement continues to build in anticipation of tomorrow night’s red-carpet premiere of In Like Flynn, with the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre set to play host to stars and industry heavyweights.

“We have hit the road running and we are really excited,” CinefestOZ chief executive officer Malinda Nixon said.

“We have some amazing films, amazing talent, amazing filmmakers and just a great team coming in and the community supports us all the way.

“The thing that makes CinefestOZ quite different is that it is not just a series of film screenings, it’s all about the people and the stories behind the films.”

There are plenty more events scheduled in Bunbury during the next four days, including a number of community screenings at the Bunbury Museum.

Spaces across the CBD will also be activated, with the Rose Hotel to screen Australia’s Funniest Shorts at 6.30pm on Saturday.

The full program is available at www.cinefestoz.com.
