New Farm cinemas will be holding a special Q & A screening with AACTA Award winning director Macario De Souza (Bra Boys) and cast on 12 August.
Premiering at the 2022 Sydney Film Festival to a sold out audience, 6 Festivals follows Maxie, Summer and James who share a deep bond and love for music. James (Rory Potter) is the entrepreneur of the trio, his sights set on a career as a promoter. Summer (Yasmin Honeychurch) has an incredible singing voice. Maxie (Rasmus King, Bosch & Rockit, SFF 2021) is the maestro of mischief. When James receives a devastating diagnosis, the friends – each with burdens to bear – throw themselves into a whirlwind of festivals in an attempt to escape reality. Featuring Birri Gubba and Wonnarua woman Guyala Bayles and top Australian acts Dune Rats, G Flip, Bliss n Eso, B Wise, Peking Duk, Ruby Fields, Jerome Farah, Kobie Dee and more – and fantastic footage shot at actual festivals.
6 Festivals was shot at leading Australian music festivals and locations in Queensland, New South Wales and Canberra through 2020 and 2021. Director and co-writer Macario De Souza was inspired to create 6 Festivals from his own personal experience as a touring musician, music fan, surfer and the environment he grew up in.
Macario De Souza comments; “Music festivals are a rite of passage for young Australians. Everything about that world is exciting to me. The pre-festival anticipation, the road trip, the surf along the way, the chance of love, lifetime memories with mates, your favourite bands live, the adrenaline of thousands of punters screaming, the after parties, the come down/hangover, the dreaded drive home and the excitement for the next festival! It’s a place where you can momentarily escape your normal world and lose yourself collectively with your crew”.
