COTT FILM FEST 2020 Sun screen

The fourth annual CottFilmFest sees a range of Australian and international blockbusters come to the big screen down by the beach. Over three weekends (Jan 31 – Feb 16) the seaside town of Cottesloe will be awash with world-class cinema. Be it Tarantino or Disney, documentaries or racing flicks, Shakespearian heroines or Spanish directors, there’s a lot to whet the appetite of film goers this festival. As well as a food, drinks, and music to emphasise the festival atmosphere.

The first weekend will kick off with one of the most popular Australian films of the year, Ride Like A Girl. Directed by Rachel Griffiths, this is the true story of the first female jockey to ever win the Melbourne Cup, Michelle Payne (played by Teresa Palmer). Saturday will see the high octane 60s retro action of Le Mans, with Matt Damon and Christian Bale in Ford v Ferrari. The weekend will wrap up with the Stan Grant written documentary about AFL legend Adam Goodes, The Australian Dream.

The second weekend will see a female perspective on Hamlet in Ophelia, Tarantino’s love letter to 60s cinema in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, and director Ron Howard’s look at one of opera’s greatest talents in Pavarotti.

On the final weekend we see an incredible Australian and international cast in the comedy drama Palm Beach, the sequel to one of the most popular Disney films ever, in Frozen 2 (that song’s already in your head), and iconic director Pedro Almodóvar shares one of his most personal films yet, in Pain and Glory.

Add to this numerous vendors providing food, a bar, live music, and screenings at the Cottesloe Civic Centre are certainly an event to look forward to.

The CottFilmFest 2020 runs over three weekends at the Cottesloe Civic Centre, from January 31 to February 16. See website for details.
