MODIFIED 3.45pm, February 6, to include feedback from the festival on the reason for changing venue.
For many years a fixture of the Araluen Arts Centre calendar, the Sydney Travelling Film Festival this year will be staged at the Alice Springs Cinemas. Owner Paul Darvodelsky is delighted: he’s a fan of “this sort of film” – arthouse and independent – and has made an effort to program them. Hosting the festival will be a way of getting the message across that the cinemas have broadened their offerings.
