Many Indonesian films are cutting edge and the Indonesian film industry has experienced enormous growth since the ground breaking films of the early 2000s.

The Australian films being screened in the festival have been selected to showcase Australia’s artistic and cultural achievements in film. They will share with Indonesian audiences our sense of humour, warmth, passion, love of country and ingenuity.

Synopsis

KILLERS

A psychopathic Japanese executive accidentally triggers a journalist's 'dark side'. They begin to connect over the Internet and make a complicated bond.

BACKTRACK

Psychologist Peter Bower's life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that the patients he has been seeing are ghosts. Risking his own sanity, Peter delves into his past to uncover a terrifying secret which only he can put right. Backtrack is a spine-chilling story from the acclaimed writer-director, Michael Petroni.

THE MIRROR NEVER LIES

The story follows a young Bajou girl named Pakis who is trying to find her father who disappeared at the sea. Problems and conflicts lead Pakis to realize that it is the sea which helps her to find her true identity.

THE DRESSMAKER

A glamorous woman returns to her small town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

PAPER PLANES

A young boy from Australia named Dylan has a passion for flight and ends up competing in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan. He faces distraction and hostility from a school bully; as well as his father, still grieving over the death of his mother in an automobile accident; his chief rival, the spoiled win-at-all-cost Jason and a kite-hawk he feeds on his way to school. At least he meets Kimi, the Japanese paper plane champion.

ODDBALL

An eccentric chicken farmer, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog Oddball to protect a penguin sanctuary from fox attacks in an attempt to reunite his family and save their seaside town.
