It was a full house at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre Sky Bar as guests walked the red carpet alongside the stars of science fiction-thriller The Gateway on Friday night.

After guests, stars and filmmakers networked while being served beverages and canapes, everyone took their seats for the WA premiere of the film in the Cube Theatre.

The film screening was followed by a Q&A session with director John V. Soto, Myles Pollard, Jacqueline McKenzie, Ben Mortley, Ryan Panizza and writer Michael White.
