Interview
One week into the Melbourne International Film Festival, and audiences have already been spoiled with numerous incredible films, making the long lines on cold nights well worth it. One of the most acclaimed films of the festival is Francis Lee’s ‘God’s Own Country’, a powerful and moving film about a young farmer in Yorkshire and his romance with a Romanian immigrant that’s already being called a queer film classic. Daniel was tremendously lucky to chat with Francis about his debut film while he visits for the festival.

'God's Own Country' is in Australian cinemas from the 31st August 2017. You can read our five-star review here.

You can check out our reviews for the festival at our MIFF mini-site. We'll be adding to it daily with new reviews during the festival.

Interview
In an attempt to cut costs and improve technology, many cinemas in the past decade have made the move to digital projectors, eliminating the need for film - and film projectionists. Melbourne’s Astor Theatre is one of the few places in Australia that still regularly shows movies on film - and Brent and Daniel went along to take in a 77-year-old classic.

For the full program, visit the Astor Theatre website.
