Gold Coast film festival

The Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) presented by Pacific Fair Shopping Centre has ‘unmasked’ its 2013 Program showcasing 28 feature films from a diverse selection of local and international filmmakers including a host of award-winning films. Now in its 11th year, the GCFF will be held over 10 days from April 18 – April 28 at Birch, Carroll and Coyle Cinemas at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on the Gold Coast.

Casey Marshall Siemer, Festival Director of the GCFF, said this year’s lineup will showcase world-class film makers and present 15 Australian premieres plus six Queensland premieres.

GCFF movie-lovers have seven weeks from today’s announcement to prepare their nerves for the Closing Night film on April 28 with the special advance screening of the much anticipated Evil Dead. A new vision from the producers of the original and critically acclaimed cult horror classic, Evil Dead is directed by Fede Alvarezhas, hand-picked by Sam Raimi himself, and heralded as the most terrifying film you will ever experience.

Already announced, opening the GCFF on April 18 is the Australian premiere of the international award-winning film The History of FUTURE FOLK, a sci fi comedy “destined to become a cult favourite” with real-life bluegrass playing alien Jay Klaitz AKA the ‘Mighty Kevin’ attending the red carpet premiere. The GCFF will also be the first opportunity for Australian cinema-goers to watch Sushi Girl on the big screen with its red carpet premiere scheduled for April 19. A stylish, ultraviolent crime film in the mould of Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, Sushi Girl features a genre cast to die for including Tony Todd (Candyman), Noah Hathaway (Neverending Story) and James Duval (Donnie Darko) who will travel to the Gold Coast with director/writer/producer Kern Saxton and writer/producer Destin Pfaff to attend the GCFF Australian premiere and other GCFF special events.
