The Clare Valley Film Festival, deep in Australia’s Mid-North Region, is saturated with the rich landscape and oral history of its region. This young festival is already “building a reputation as one of the top educationally focused film festivals in regional Australia” (Screenculture.net) and in that it stands as a landmark showcase for regional Australian talent and a lighthouse of inspiration for young film-making talent. The interactive, get-involved spirit of the festival is perhaps best exemplified by the Clewers Film Challenge – to script, shoot and cut a three minute film in just 48 hours! Hosted by the Blyth Cinema, Westpac Community Idol of 2005, and MashMosh films, responsible for such internationally recognised docs as The Sweeney – The Life and Work of Jim Sweeney; the Clare Valley Film Festival is an essential stop on any globe-trotting film-lovers itinerary.
