The Travelling Film Festival will showcase a specially curated and riveting program for Bundaberg Region audiences from 14 to 16 October, including some of the most loved and best cinema from around the world.

Opening the Travelling Film Festival at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre is Archibald-winning artist Del Kathryn Barton’s directional debut, Blaze.

The film combines puppetry and animation to showcase twelve-year-old Blaze’s inner psychedelic mind after witnessing a brutal crime on the street.

Screening exclusively at Bundaberg is 2022 Sundance Award winner Fire of Love directed by Sara Dosa.

This eye-opening archival footage shot by two unconventional French scientists obsessed with each other and volcanoes.

The French comedy inspired by real-life experiences, Beautiful Minds from dour funeral director Bernard Campan and philosophical delivery man Alexandre Jollien make an oddball duo as they embark on an unconventional road trip.

Travelling Film Festival manager Sanam Rodrigues said they were excited to bring Queensland a fresh and exciting program this October.

“Don’t miss out on some of the festival's favourite titles such as Cannes 2022 Grand Prix winner Close from Belgium, and the first Gaelic language feature to compete at Berlin, The Quiet Girl from Ireland,” Sanam said.

“Plus, plenty more fascinating and mind-blowing selections for everyone to enjoy.”

Highlights of the program for Bundaberg include the mysterious and raucous Iranian road trip journey, Hit the Road, selected into numerous international film festivals, including Cannes Film Festival and Rotterdam International Film Festival.

Also showing will be the cringe-inducing dark comedy from New Zealand, Millie Lies Low, directed by Michelle Savill and starring Ana Scotney.

In a tale about thoughtful exploration of imposter syndrome and the ways anxiety can distort decision making.

While the acclaimed filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s Decision to Leave starring Park Hae-il is a visually stunning mystery interweaved with the complexities of forbidden love.

Travelling Film Festival is proud to also present four Australian short films from this year's Sydney Film Festival, including Steve Anthopoulos’ Voice Activated and Natalia Stawyskyj’s All Silent Dogs.

Tickets to Travelling Film Festival Bundaberg are now on sale.
