2016 Young at Heart Film Festival

It’s the world’s only film festival for senior citizens, and it’s back for its 11th season.

The Young at Heart Film Festival returns to Canberra and Sydney on 1 April before travelling onwards to Melbourne and Brisbane. The festival brings with it a diverse line-up that’s sure to tug on heartstrings as well as make viewers consider their complex, frustrating, and unbreakable family relationships.

I asked festival director Mathieu Ravier why seniors need their own film festival, and which movie from the program he thinks a senior citizen in his life would most enjoy.

The 2016 Young at Heart Film Festival is on in Canberra from 1 – 7 April. View the full program on their website.
