Coming to you today from the Forum Theatre, this is our annual outside broadcast as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival... Director Emma Franz talks about her film Intangible Asset Number 82, screening as part of the Homegrown program; Executive Director Richard Moore discusses the effects of the Chinese boycott and MIFF website attacks, as well as his recommendations of the Festival; filmmaker Hugh Marchant talks about his involvement in the Australian Post-Punk program; Sarah Finney discusses the work of the National Film and Sound Archive; director Alexis Dos Santos chats about his film, Unmade Beds; local actor Nick Barkla talks to Paul Harris about his role in Alkinos Tsilimidos’ latest film, Blind Company; and we close the show with producer Robyn Kershaw discussing the world premiere of Bran Nue Dae on the final day of the Festival.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
