Tim Georgeson’s recent film collaboration with Surf Lodge – Mystique Sequence – was just announced as an official selection of the Byron Bay Film Festival, where it will make its Australian premiere. The film will screen on October 22nd at 7:30 PM at the Byron Community Center.
Launching in 2005, the Byron Bay Film Festival has established a reputation for showcasing a range of films with an emphasis on content that seeks to raise social, cultural and environmental awareness. Locating the festival within Australia’s largest regional film hub, BBFF attracts industry folk, artists, film buffs, local residents and tourists with a program that caters to these different audiences, offering Adults Only sessions, Family sessions and screening works that celebrate our local community, its values and environment. The festival’s series of awards recognise excellence in film for such categories as features, shorts, documentary, music videos and animation and has been recognising fresh talent since its inception with the Young Australian Filmmaker of the Year Award which is judged by Film Critic Peter Thompson.
Byron Bay’s beautiful location, renowned for its beaches and rainforests, provides one of the most unique backdrops for a film fest along with a community renowned worldwide for its focus on style and innovative design, green values, and multicultural creativity.
Update: After screening at BBFF, Mystique Sequence was chosen as recipient of the festival’s Director’s Award.
