Our co-director boarded a plane a couple of days ago, for today is the opening night of the Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF) where Glitter Dust: Fidning Art in Dubai will have its Australian premiere. And for those who cannot go, we promise to bring back baby koalas! In eucalyptus-lined steamer trunks so they will be very comfortable.
Glitter Dust screens this Sunday, November 18th at 11:45 AM. We’re really pleased Glitter Dust has been programmed with The Love of Books: A Sarajevo Story. The film tells of a library director and a group of dedicated bibliophiles saving ancient Islamic manuscripts under artillery shells and sniper fire. Such an interesting complement to all that glitters in Dubai and underneath, the universal struggle to nourish art and culture.
