“There are films about refugees,” he said.

“[They are] about the impact of religious extremism on secular societies. On the environment, on the relationship between individuals and their government and on sexuality.”

The interesting festival which is been held from June the 8th to the 19th will consist of works from 60 diverse countries with the aim of reflecting exclusive topical issues, the Festival director Nashen Moodley said.

It was also disclosed that regarding the 2016 program, launched today, will be more concentrated on European filmmakers. In addition to the earlier statement, half of the 93 feature films will be accessible to teenagers who are above the ages of 15.

“That opens the festival up to an entire new generation of people,” Mr. Moodley said.

For the Real-time and Mainstream filmmaker Natasha Lawrence, the theme “changes your view, change your world” had an extraordinary impact.

“I didn’t believe him,” she said.

“But he is. [Schwarzenegger] was best man at his wedding.

“The thought came to my mind — if I get myself fit enough, I could probably enter one of these competitions. And I did.”

It was discovered that Arnold follows Ms Lawrence and her friend, Kylene Anderson, as “a couple of Aboriginal girls who get into bodybuilding”.

“It’s like a women’s documentary. It’s women’s business,” Ms. Lawrence said.

“Kylene represents the single woman that’s doing it on her own. And I’m the single mum that’s doing it on my own with kids.”



Ms Lawrence further stated that it would be essential to provide Aboriginal women a voice.
“It’s about time. We’ve been so quiet for so long … this is what Australia’s made of: we’re all black, white, yellow, red here,” she said.

“You don’t have to put us as the person who’s probably robbing someone, or down and out. We’re not alcoholics. We’re also lawyers and doctors.

“If I could make a difference in someone’s life by just watching this film, my job is done.”

“Virtual reality means 360-degree immersive environment that you enter by donning a headset, and by sound and image you’re completely immersed in another world,” Mr. Ravier said.

“Stuck in the middle with you puts you on stage with the Sydney Dance Company … being on stage, surrounded by the dancers and hearing them breathe, and seeing them from all angles.


“The exhilaration of performance really comes through because no other vantage point gives you that immediacy and excitement.”

“As you walk into this world, you look up and towering above you is this giant technicolour Cheshire Cat, grinning at you.”

“VR is going to play a huge role, not just for film, but it has a wide range of industrial applications,” he said.

“For example, you can visit a radioactive site that you can walk through.”

It has also been gathered that among the 12 films chosen to contend at the open festival includes The Australian film Goldstone starring Jacki Weaver and David Gulpilil which will compete in the $60,000 Sydney Film Prize.
