Join Director Rhiannon Bannenberg and Producer Steve Jaggi at our Q&A screening of the coming-of-age feature film RIP TIDE - exclusive and complimentary to AFI and AACTA members.

Teenage model Cora (played by Disney star Debby Ryan) is the daughter of the head of a major modelling agency and has always worked hard to live up to the expectations of her mother (Danielle Carter). When a damaging video of Cora goes viral she departs for Australia to spend time with her aunt Margot (Genevieve Hegney). Margot is also facing her own difficulties and their time together becomes a learning experience for them both.

RIP TIDE conveys the soul-searching that young people face as they grow and change, whilst also touching on themes of friendship, family and romance. Ryan’s Australian feature debut has a supporting cast that includes Jeremy Lindsay Taylor as Margot’s husband, Andrew Creer as Cora’s love interest, Valerie Bader as Margot’s friend Bee and Naomi Sequeira as Cora’s new friend Chicka. These characters support and influence Cora until eventually she has to decide between returning to her modelling career in the US, driven by her ambitious mother, or staying with the local community that has openly welcomed her.

Rhiannon Bannenberg and Steve Jaggi will take part in a Q&A following the screening.

Join director Ruth Borgobello and cinematographer Katie Milwright (LOOKING FOR GRACE, PLEASE LIKE ME) at our Q&A screening of Ruth’s feature film debut, THE SPACE BETWEEN – exclusive and complimentary to AFI and AACTA members.

THE SPACE BETWEEN is an emotional tale of love and loss revolving around Marco (Flavio Parenti), an ex-chef who has given up his career to return to Udine in Northern Italy to nurse his ailing father. When tragedy strikes, the only glimmer of joy arrives in the form of Olivia (AACTA Award nominated actress Maeve Dermody), a spirited Australian on a family mission in Udine, chasing her own dream of working in design.

Against the vineyard peppered countryside, jagged mountainscape and electric blue Adriatic Sea, these two very different people find themselves at a crossroads that will change their lives forever.

Ruth Borgobello and Katie Milwright will take part in a Q&A following the screening.
