Show 1.4, “The Clare Valley Film Festival Festa”

In preperation for our super exciting three hour live broadcast from Blyth, this week’s show is all about the Clare Valley Film Festival. Let’s get down to business!

Sylvia Syms has been in the film and acting world since the 50s, working on critically acclaimed films such as Ice Cold in Alex (1958) and The Queen (2006). Outside of acting she is also involved in judging panels for film festivals – one of them being the CVFF – and I was lucky enough to catch her at midnight for an interview. She was all the way on the other side of the world in London but it felt like we were having a lovely chat over tea and scones. She talks about her involvement in festivals and her long and varied career. And a great anecdote about the worst film she worked on. She’s a great storyteller.

Carolyn Choa as had a colourful career as a dancer, choreographer, producer and script translator. She joins the CVFF as the program coordinator, responsible for scheduling the myriad of films on offer. It was another midnight chat for her in England as I spoke to her over the phone about her work in films and the differences between East and West filmmaking.


Matthew Jenkin is one of the creative heads behind Ninja Milk, a media content provider. That’s his day job – in his spare time he makes movies! His new film Family Values will be screening at the CVFF and I spoke to him about how it developed and being a Jack of all media trades.

Our “Rant of the Week” (TM) goes to Michael Facey who we interviewed last week about the film he produced, Kanowna. He took a more positive spin on “The Rant” which is all about letting industry peeps give their opinon on the state of Australian film.
