BAPFF Tales Screening

A series of lead-in screenings ahead of November’s 9th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) and 2nd Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival (BAPFF), both proudly presented by Treasury Casino and Hotel, are creating fantastic festival buzz in the city.

The first of the screenings took place on Friday night in front of a sold out crowd at The Australian Cinémathèque, QAGOMA. They gathered to watch Tales from acclaimed Iranian Director Rakshan Bainetemed, two-time APSA recipient including last year’s Jury Grand Prize. The film was showcased in partnership with Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA).

BAPFF Head Programmer Kiki Fung said the pre-screenings were vital to create strong community engagement leading up to the festival.

“They’re significant in demonstrating the quality and genre of film which will be available in BAPFF’s official program this November.”

The next APSA BAPFF screening is Force of Destiny by Australian director Paul Cox, starring David Wenham and Shahana Goswami.

When: 11 September
Where: Palace Centro Cinemas, James St

A Q & A with the acclaimed director, hosted by APSA BAPFF Film Director Maxine Williamson, will follow the screening.
