London: 2018 OZ Film Festival


  • Regent Street Cinema 309 Regent Street London, England, W1B 2HT United Kingdom (map)

On behalf of our friends OZ Film Festival, we are delighted to share with you the wonderfully eclectic mix of new and significant Australian features, documentaries, comedies, dramas, a family film, and a genuine cult classic they are bringing to the Regent Street Cinema 6-8 July!

Enjoy an Australian mini-break in the heart of Central London over a weekend in July.

Coming to see all the films on the weekend (Sat/Sun only)? If you book tickets to all the films in the same transaction you’ll qualify for the weekend pass and save £20.

There are free drinks receptions on opening and closing night (generously supported by the Australian High Commission) and goodie bags with Australian novels for all ticket holders at both the bookend events.
 
David Wenham will be attending opening night to introduce his directorial debut, Ellipsis, author Kathy Lette will introduce Swinging Safari on Saturday, representatives of three NGOs will be discussing the work they do and how we can combat the plastic issue in our everyday lives at Blue The Film on Sunday and the festival will close with a very special Q&A with director Priscilla Cameron at The Butterfly Tree.

Babe: Pig in the City will be screened with subtitles and audio description so everyone can enjoy reuniting with the most loveable pig in the world. Children’s tickets are ½ price and they will all receive a picture book or middle-grade novel.

Use the promo code OzDoc for £9 tickets to both Blue the Film and Kangaroo: A Love Hate Story.
