WOW FILM FESTIVAL TOUR 2009 UPDATE The WOW Film Festival Tour was hosted by Dance North in Townsville and screened on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th November. We’re really thrilled that audiences in Far North Queensland have the opportunity to see the diverse film programs which WOW offers. We thank Joanne Fisher and her team at Dance North for bringing WOW to Townsville. The Brisbane Powerhouse Arts Centre hosted the WOW Film Festival Tour in Brisbane at the chic Visy Theatre. Brisbane Powerhouse presents contemporary Arts programs and the WOW Tour is a great fit for this venue, a renovated Powerhouse by the banks of the Brisbane River. Patrons can catch a jetcat to Powerhouse which is set in a spacious park at New Farm. The audience while modest in number were enthusiastic about the programs. “The Prams” a funny satire on some modern childless career women’s attitude towards motherhood referencing Alfred Hitcock’s “The Birds” is a film produced and filmed in Brisbane. We thank the Powerhouse Arts team, particularly Tanya-Hiroko Martin, theatre programmer and Derek Griffin our projectionist for the evenings. Brisbane is the final WOW Tour destination for 2009 and we look forward to working with our WOW Tour partners to bring our new WOW 2009 Film Festival program to major cities and regional centres around Australia in the 2010 WOW Tour.
