WA MADE FILM FESTIVAL Local films on the big screen

Kicking off for the first time this year, the WA Made Film Festival is here to give a shoutout to locally made content. The three day fest runs from Friday, March 13 to Sunday, March 15. The local films will be showcased at Palace Cinemas Raine Square, Palace Cinemas Paradiso and Northbridge Piazza.

The festival features documentaries, short films and feature films made right here in Western Australia. There will be a free Short Documentary Showcase at the Northbridge Piazza, however, most other screenings cost money. All locations are only a short walk from Perth City Train Station.

The WA Made Film Festival was put together by two members of the WA film community, Jasmine Leivers and Matthew Eeles, as a way to better showcase local talent, and have our own space for local filmmakers to get their work on the big screen.

The WA Made Film Festival runs from Friday, March 13 to Sunday, March 15. Tickets from the WA Made Film Festival website. Find the full programme here.

Judas Collar Trailer

"Beautifully realised and emotive. A truly original perspective." – FilmInkIn outback Australia a wild camel is captured and fitted with a tracking device known as a Judas Collar. Based on a real life practice, Judas Collar is a scripted, no-dialogue, live action short that explores the story of a camel used to betray her kind."Some stories can change the course of your life and for me this is one of them. I came across the words Judas Collar while setting up a documentary series about helicopter pilots in the outback. I was struck by the fact a scientific device had been given a religious name. When I dug further I was shocked at how horrific an experience it must be for a camel to be burdened with the deaths of their fellow camels. And to hear whisperings of the idea of Judas camels becoming self aware, of walking alone to save the herd was incredibly tragic. The more I explored, the more I knew it was a story I had to tell."
