The annual Melbourne Women in Film Festival (MWFF) has announced its full program for 2023, including Freshly Squeezed Shorts, Next Gen Shorts and Reel Shorts. Through the theme Connections, MWFF will explore creative collaborations and community through a dynamic program for its seventh year from 23–27 February 2023 at ACMI.
On Saturday 25 February, MWFF has announced the Australian premiere screening of Patricia Cornelius’ award-winning drama, SHIT, staring Peta Brady, Sarah Ward and Nicci Wilks. SHIT is a psychological drama which unfolds over one long night of incarceration in a bleak holding cell. Caged for hours on end, Billy, Bobby and Sam reveal their stories of a life time of violence, abuse, and institutionalisation. Told with unsentimental, sometimes comical, often gut-wrenching insight, SHIT is directed by Susie Dee and co-produced by Trudy Hellier.
