UK’s The Bill star launches Clare Valley Film Festival 2010:
Call for Entries
             The first Clare Valley Film Festival 23 Jan 2010 (CVFF2010) will spotlight works by
             Australian and international independent filmmakers, as well as informing and
             inspiring a new generation of filmmakers through the CVFF2010 Challenge, and
             raising the profile of this vibrant and diverse area – the Clare Valley.

             The true identity of Australia is defined by her landscape and what better way to
             experience her stories than at this extraordinary festival location in the Mid North
             Region. This inclusive festival aims to break down the perceptions that filmmaking
             is difficult and costly. Just this year a zombie movie by director Marc Pricehas was
             selected for the Cannes Film Festival, which only cost $102 to make! CVFF2010’s focus
             is to arm Australians with the knowledge and skills to tell their stories through film.

             There are many young enthusiastic filmmakers in the Mid North region desperate for
             local support and training. CVFF2010 highlights special workshops and seminars led
             by experienced industry professionals such as Seeta Indrani, director/producer from
             MashMosh Films, but probably best known as WPC Norika Datta, in The Bill.
