GodWolf – ‘Alone’ – She’s a solitary dancer who performs for nobody; he’s an isolated kid with no one to interact with. They’re both ‘alone’ but ‘haven’t been alone in a long time’.

The Tales of Us (Teaser) – music clips from Goldfrapp concert.

The Funmaker – “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” Friedrich Nitzche A new age of fun has started in Byron Bay.

The Master’s Voice – Every night at 3:33 all clocks stop and time is frozen for a fraction of second. There is a second night, a magical one where the spirits of the city come out to play.

We Keep on Dancing – A comic-drama about human connection expressed through the strange meeting, stranger dance, shared by the mechanic and  the lonesome gent with the rundown Beetle in the workshop.

Indian Aussies – A tongue in cheek look at Indian Australians across the spectrum. From identity to racism, from maintaining their roots to assimilation, and of course Cricket. This film deals with everything, and like a Bollywood film there is a twist and music at the end.

Upaj: Improvise – The journey of 68 year old Kathak (North Indian Classical dance) master, Pandit Chitresh Das with 32 year old tap star Jason Samuels Smith, is an explosive East-meets-West collaboration, ‘India Jazz Suites.’ As these two artists, from different cultural backgrounds, different generations, and different art forms come together in this unique collaboration, they discover not only the similarities of their artistry, but the congruous paths that lie ahead for themselves as artists, and for their art forms. As they persevere to preserve their traditional heritage in today’s pop culture world, young learns from old, and old learns from new. Their whirlwind tour of India, brings to audiences a whole new look at the value of maintaining ones tradition and the role of mentors in life’s journeys.
