So gear up, strap yourself in, grab your armrests, and prepare to blast-off as we count down to the most exciting cinematic experience the universe has to offer!

Festival director and all-round nice guy Dean Bertram states, “As the festivals' audiences have come to expect, they will again be able to meet and mingle with an array of Australian and international filmmakers at the fest's Q&A sessions and welcoming after parties.”

Just a few of the many filmmakers and actors who will be in attendance to present premiere screenings of their films include: director Chris Sun, and stars Nathan Jones and Allira Jaques, from the highly anticipated Australian chiller CHARLIE'S FARM, this year's closing night film, Guy Pigden and Harley Neville, the director and the star, of the gut-busting New Zealand zombie comedy I SURVIVED A ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney (of the cult Canadian filmmaking team Astron-6) with their Toronto International Film Festival hit THE EDITOR, Canadian ex-pat Ursula Dabrowsky with her highly-anticipated second feature INNER DEMON, and the McCarthy Brothers (Kevin directs, Michael stars) will present the world premiere screening of their graphic novel inspired thrill-ride FURY: THE TALES OF RONAN PIERCE.
