Towards the end of last year, my short play was shortlisted to show at the Short + Sweet Sydney this year. It wasn't picked up by any director but I approached Ren Thackham who had just won Best Director (shorts) at the Sydney Indie Film Festival to direct the short play as I wouldn't be able to make it to Sydney.
She took the play and did such a fantastic job with it. Working with her super amazing and super talented cast they won their round and went throught to the Wildcard finals. After competing with 7 other plays in the same week, and selling out on both screening dates.
The play will compete with 7 other finalists in the same category and will screen on 5th & 6th March, 2016. All the best to this amazing bunch!
SHORT+SWEET WILDCARD FINALS screening details:
Saturday 5th March @ 2:30pm
Sunday 6th March @ 1:00pm & 5:30pm
