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.
