REWIND with Made in the West!
Grab some popcorn, pour yourself a drink and settle in this weekend for our hand-picked selection of festival films from the Made in the West archive!
Still Searchin’ Productions is proud to announce that we’ve been working on a new digital series for you to feast your eyes upon in the coming weeks. We figured that seeing as we’re all glued to our screens and in lock-down, we may as well be watching some awesome Western Sydney Films!
Made in the West REWIND is your weekly dose of short films from the festival archive featuring Western Sydney filmmakers and hosted by Roscoe from the 'Pagey Train' podcast (otherwise known as artistic director of Made in the West Film Festival).
We’ll have new REWIND episodes for you EVERY FRIDAY on YouTube!
And guess what? We’re kicking things off TODAY on Friday 1st of May!
SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel and sit back as we take you on a ride back in time to watch some of the best films from nearly a decade of film festivals, including those who snatched up the annual Best in the West, Best Student Film and Audience Choice Award trophies.
What a great time we've had going through the festival archive hunting for our favourite films!
Artistic director Ross Page was in his element behind the microphone - check him out here in the SSP studio recording the show.
We have seen some truly amazing projects screened at the Made in the West over the past nine years. From doco's to mocko's, animation to post apocalyptic thrillers, drama to music videos, action to adventure - there’s something for everyone!
“We love supporting the Western Sydney film scene and we’re always looking for new ways to share the work of local filmmakers” says general manager Misty McPhail. “Not to mention this is an unprecedented situation, I mean, when else is the entire country staying at home and looking for something to watch?”
More than ever, we want to see local films on our screens. With all that’s happening in the world and the impact that’s had on our arts community, we know it’s important for us to keep supporting local filmmakers and showcasing Western Sydney films.
So tune in every Friday and support your local film scene by watching and sharing these festival films among your networks. Western Sydney filmmakers are producing quality films and we want everyone to know about it!
