Recently I mentioned that the new Australian adaptation of Tim Winton’s novel The Turning would be showing at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival.
Well, here’s another event for all you film buffs and literature lovers out there. MIFF is partnering with The Wheeler Centre to host a panel discussion with author Tim Winton plus 13 of the film’s 17 directors: Robert Connolly, Mia Wasikowska, Warwick Thornton, Shaun Gladwell, Tony Ayres, Rhys Graham, Jub Clerc, Ashlee Page, Simon Stone, Jonathan auf der Heide, Marieka Walsh, Claire McCarthy and Ian Meadows. The discussion will be moderated by journalist Sandy George.
Date: 4 August 2013
Venue: Forum Theatre, 154 Flinders St, Melbourne
