The festival will be held from Friday to Sunday, June 29 to July 1 in the iconic James Theatre.

“It’s all coming together really well and we have a fantastic new Australian film for opening night,” Ms Zitserman said.

Not Suitable For Children starring Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Ryan Corr (Packed to the Rafters), Sarah Snook (Sleeping Beauty) and Bojana Novakovic (Edge of Darkness) and directed by Peter Templeman is a romantic comedy about a young playboy who learns he has one month until he becomes infertile sets out to procreate as much as possible.

“Ryan and the other actors will come to the after party at Dungog RSL Club on Friday night,” Ms Zitserman said.

“There will be films shown daily from 9am to 11pm and the filmmaker who worked on Gotya’s Somebody That I used to Know will be working with Dungog High School students on Friday.

“Popular In the Raw will be held in the public school hall on Saturday from 4pm to 7pm where the community gets together to listen to the reading of unproduced screenplays.

“It’s a great way to showcase some of the most exciting Australian screenwriters.

“The parade on Saturday is going to be huge and is themed this year to pay respect to last year’s blockbuster Australian film, Red Dog.

“The Settlers Arms Hotel will play host to filmmaker networking events with live music every night, and a mouth-watering bar menu showcasing the best local produce the region has to offer.

“There will be street stalls . . . a real carnival atmosphere.”

Ms Zitserman said there has been a slight change in the structure of the event but the quality and content will not change.

“I don’t expect there will be as many people and we have had problems with accommodation and transport in past years,” she said.

“But it will be a great three days.

“There will be five new Australian feature films, three life changing documentaries and over 60 short films packed into three inspiring days at the James Theatre, Dungog.”
