The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival is back for another year, running from the 19th to the 30th July 2019. Check out our reviews below for the highlights from this year's line-up.
Far from being for adrenaline junkies, this is a quiet documentary that needed a little more grunt to get it off the ground.
It's is not an in-depth study or observation, it is merely a glimpse. It’s still a nice jumping off point for it viewers to use to then go and delve into this new phenomenon of the single lady.
There have been many documentaries about dogs, but ‘Dog’s Best Friend’ doesn’t manipulate the audience. It just shows what’s great about both the human spirit and the K9 friends we all love.
A powerful and hopeful look into how people cope with tragedy and, from the literal ashes, how something beautiful is created.
Maybe it’s the scrappiness of the filmmakers, the curiosity they exude, or their rapport with the musicians, but this is an interesting and unusually heartwarming feature documentary.
