Stolevski’s Housekeeping for Beginners in Adelaide Film Festival line-up

The Australian-Mecedonian's new film is among a number to be named for this October's festival in South Australia.

The Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) has announced its first films for the 2023 Festival, including the Australian premiere of Goran Stolevski’s Housekeeping for Beginners, a special preview of the South Australian docu-drama Speedway, and this year’s Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner, Anatomy of a Fall.

Housekeeping for Beginners heads to AFF direct from its World Premiere at the Venice International Film Festival. Stolevski’s third feature, filmed in his birth country Macedonia, is about a lesbian woman in Macedonia who is forced to raise her dead partner’s two daughters.
