The Real Film Festival 2018 is almost upon us, and to celebrate you’re invited to join us for the Official Launch on the 26th of October!

The 2018 Program Launch will commence at 5.30pm at the King Street’s eclectic café The Culture Club, announcing the full range of entertaining, controversial and engaging films, as well as the spectacular line up of Q&A guests in this year’s festival. Enjoy the delicious canapés as well as celebratory refreshments from Peter Drayton Wines, IronBark Hill Brewhouse and Saxby’s soft drinks.

Create NSW’s Senior Manager Sally Regan will then officially launch the program before we head over to the iconic Tower Cinemas, Newcastle for an advanced screening of Momentum Generation.  The film follows the emotional and heartwarming journeys of professional surfers as they take on Mother Nature’s oceans for glory.  It features legendary surfers including Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, and Shane Dorian, and delves into their relationships with the sport, mate-ship, passion and legacy.

An exclusive Q&A session with a professional surfer will follow the screening, allowing audiences to gain a deeper insight into their connection with the sport.

After the screening, join us at the Gala Party for gourmet delights, fine wine, craft beer and great conversation at Customs House Hotel, Newcastle.  It’s sure to be a great night of food, drinks, and offers the opportunity to connect with other filmgoers and creators.  The Gala party is always a highlight of the festival and is not one to be missed!
