Australian Short Film selected for 62nd BFI London Film Festival
Australian Short Film Boytime has been selected for the BFI London Film Festival. It will be included in the program for the 62nd Edition of the festival, which is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious.
The film was produced independently by Melbourne based trio John Angus Stewart, Jono Kable and Max Coles, directed by Stewart and Kable, with a script penned by Stewart and produced by Coles.
The selection of Boytime marks the second consecutive year the filmmaking team has had a Short Film selected following the screening of Everyman at the 61st edition last year. This is a rare achievement and the first time that an Australian filmmaker has had the honour of their films screening at back to back festivals.
Boytime examines male ritual and process and continues the filmmakers honest investigation and critique of elements of masculinity, a theme that is key to their previous shorts as well as their forthcoming feature debut.
Boytime will have its world premiere in the LOVE strand in the Short Film section Lust to Love and In between on Friday 12th of October.
