Celebrated actor Hugo Weaving and and acclaimed director Robert Connolly will be winging their way to WA for our festival this year!

Hugo will be supporting his Film The Rooster, one of the Film Prize Finalists! He will attend the red carpet Friday screening, the sold out In Conversation the next day and the Film Prize Celebration.

Robert is our Jury Chair who will attend each film prize screening as well as the Jury Lunch! Here you can meet the whole jury, still to be announced. Robert is also the Director of the acclaimed film The Dry starring Eric Bana, with The Dry 2 out soon.

We’re thrilled to have Hugo and Robert join us.
