Francis Coppola once said the worst thing a film can be is “pretentious.”
Kim Miles’s shorts can make you feel creeped out and uncomfortable. Her films don’t TRY TO BE anything – they just ARE. You could be in a dream watching a Kim Miles film because they’re as much contrived. They’re unforgettable and the first shorts we wanted to program for GFN 1.
The World Really is W
Director – Kim Miles
Short – 2004, Australia, 6 mins
Top Speed of a Rabbit – 72 KPH
Director – Kim Miles
Short – 2004, Australia,10mins
“There is a lot to amuse and admire in Miles’ films, which combine genuine experimental edge with a wicked, satirical eye.”
Andrew Shaw, MCV Magazine
“GREAT FILMS – really enjoyed the way you film with no boundaries. Seriously liberating.”
Dee McLachlan, Writer/Director of ‘The Jammed’
“If we are not risking , experimenting, trying to rise above the mediocre, why bother?”
Kim Miles, Film maker
The Actress (2005)
Director – Zak Hilditch
Feature – 2005, Australia, 90mins
A twenty-something household is manipulated by the cunning sexuality of a new female housemate.
This film is better than every Australian film put together! Ok not really, but you get the idea. It was made for diddly squat, but who needs money when you have this much acting talent, an intriguing script, one location, and a director that is now making a fully funded feature.
The Actress actually looks better than bigger budgeted productions even though it was shot with mostly natural and available light. A kitchen in this film actually looks like a real kitchen, a lounge like a lounge. No glossy hi-end ad type images that detract from the story here!
In 2006, The Actress was selected for the biggest indie film fest in the USA – Slamdance, which receives 1000 features a year and only selects 11 or so.
“Entertaining no-budget black comedy ..”- Dennis Harvey, Variety
“Director Zak Hilditch is an amazing new talent…” – Movielist
Anyway..come see for yourself..
These monthly nights are always free, although we do ask for a donation which goes to a cool new organisation with its own guerilla style of making a difference.
See you there!
