MIFF@CinefestOZ film Measure for Measure, a finalist in the CinefestOZ Film Prize, makes its Western Australian premiere at this event, screening and after party.

Filmmakers and talent will attend the premiere at Orana Cinemas, along with the high profile Film Prize Jury. After watching the filmmakers and talent shine on the red carpet, enjoy the film, then head to the Festival Hub for delicious canapés, live music, Forester Estate wines and beers by Eagle Bay Brewing Co.

Measure for Measure is an ensemble romantic drama staring Hugo Weaving. Set within Melbourne’s commission flats, the film is a contemporary take on Shakespeare’s play of the same name.

SYNOPSIS
An unlikely love ignites between a modern Muslim girl and a local musician amongst the background of racial tension, amphetamines and gang culture in the city’s notorious housing estate.

Inspired by SHAKESPEARE’s play Measure for Measure and influenced by the gritty realism of films like Amores Perros, the social conscience of Fishtank and dynamic aesthetic of Un Prophete, Measure for Measure questions the notion of justice, the ability for redemption and the desire for power and examines the idea that ‘we can never escape our true nature or where we are from despite our attempts’. Measure for Measure is also a raw study of the most basic and yet most complex of our emotions - love…. how we react when we find it, and how far we would go to keep it.

Please note: runtime includes screening and function; this film screens in multiple cinemas at the same time so please check your cinema number; the Film Prize Jury will view the screening in Cinema 1.

Pair this Premiere event with Saturday's Measure for Measure In Conversation breakfast at 8.15am, where you will hear from filmmakers and attending talent in a hosted event at Equinox Restaurant and Bar, over looking the Busselton Jetty. It's an early start, but the coffee is good and the view is sublime! CLICK HERE for tickets!
