This morning the Sydney Film Festival teased out the first of its 2015 selections, spanning a good deal of the filmmaking spectrum. Kiwi interest was served by Sundance-winner Slow West and Deathgasm.
Deathgasm recently had its world premiere at SXSW, selling out, scoring strong reviews and adding an extra screening.
Elsewhere in the sneak peek are titles that either already have or are likely to travel here, several as festival selections: Tom Moore’s Oscar-nominated Song of the Sea, Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence; and the less family-friendly Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein in Guanajuato, Peter Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy, and Ryuichi Hiroki’s Kabukicho Love Hotel.
The full programme will be released 6 May. The Sydney Film Festival will run 3 – 14 June.
