The Australian Embassy Beijing and ANZ will hold the 2009 ANZ Australian Film Festival between 4-13 December in Beijing. The festival will feature a mix of newly released and classic Australian films, award winning animations and groundbreaking documentaries.

The films cover a wide range of genres including animation (Mary and Max and Happy Feet), drama (Razzle Dazzle, Samson and Delilah and Look Both Ways), powerful historical films (Ten Canoes, Australia and Kokoda), comedy (Kenny) and a collection of finalist short films from Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival.

The ten feature films will be screened at Megabox cinema in The Village at Sanlitun over 4-13 December. All films are screened in English with Chinese subtitles.

“Australia has a vibrant and highly developed film industry, with a strong reputation for innovation and fresh talent on the international stage,” said the Australian Ambassador Dr Geoff Raby. “It is my great pleasure to introduce the 2009 ANZ Australian Film Festival and to showcase to Chinese audiences the very best and latest films that Australia has to offer.”

Eight award winning Australian documentaries will also be screened at a special Made in Australia session at iDOCS International Documentary Festival from 11-13 December at the Beijing Film Academy. iDOCS International Documentary Forum will enable Chinese audiences to enjoy some of the world’s best documentaries and provides a platform for local movie fans and people from the film industry to meet many of the world’s leading directors face to face. Two Australian documentary makers, Amanda King and Mark Lewis will be attending the iDOCS festival.
