Seniors Film Festival (Young at Heart) returns to Sydney

Following the overwhelming success of its inaugural edition in 2006, Young at Heart, Sydney’s 2nd Seniors Film Festival, returns March 11th – 18th 2007 as part of NSW Seniors Week.

The Festival features a week of film premieres, workshops, Q&A’s and parties at Dendy Opera Quays and the Ritz Cinema in Randwick. It is a rare chance for people of all ages to enjoy prestigious new films, meet the filmmakers and take part in a fun and relaxed cultural event with friends and relatives.

Festivities kicks off on March 11th at the Ritz Cinema with a special preview of Razzle Dazzle, a hilarious new Aussie comedy, presented at the Festival by its stellar cast.

Amidst parental politics, rivalry, creative controversy and the hysterics of pushy stage mothers, Razzle Dazzle takes you behind the glamour and the glitter of children’s competitive dance – where, sometimes, winning is everything!

Join us for a special presentation of this riotous Aussie comedy starring Kerry Armstrong, Ben Miller, Barry Crocker, Denise Roberts & Tara Morice. The afternoon’s entertainment also includes dance performances, Q&A’s with the cast, lucky door prizes & more!

The program this year promises to take viewers around the world without leaving the comfort of their cinema seats.


Our selection of hand-picked premieres shows you can come of age… at any age!

Hot off its warm reception a the 2007 Sundance Film Festival comes the NSW premiere of Clubland, a new Australian film by Cherie Nowlan, starring the incomparable Brenda Blethyn alongside rising stars Emma Booth and Khan Chittenden.

Fresh from the UK is the star-studded comedy about growing up and growing wiser, Driving Lessons stars Julie Walters (Billy Elliot), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) and Laura Linney (Jindabyne).

The Namesake is the new family saga by applauded filmmaker Mira Nair. It charts the coming of age of two generations within the same Bengali family as they migrate from Calcutta to the USA.

Bring the kids to Nina’s Home, a moving French drama set in a halfway house for Jewish orphans at the end of WWII. The film will be followed by an insightful discussion with Holocaust Survivor Charles Feldman, co-hosted by the Sydney Jewish Museum.


From Hong Kong comes The Banquet, kicking off the Chinese New Year with a lavish Chinese adaptation of Hamlet starring Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon).

Turning the clocks back to 1975, we’ll screen a new print of The Man From Hong Kong, starring our very own James Bond, George Lazenby. The film will be followed by a Q&A with Australian producer John Fraser, architect of this first ever co-production with Asia.


Fans of documentaries and classical music are in with for a treat. Five Days in September is a provocative and intimate documentary revealing the inner workings of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as it launches into its opening season with an amazingly charismatic new Maestro - Peter Oundjian.

Meanwhile Rhythm Is It! brings together 250 kids and teens to perform Stravinsky’s Rites of Spring with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in an ambitious social and artistic endeavour. Join us for the Australian premiere of this fascinating new film.

Be blown away by Walt Disney’s groundbreaking 1940 Oscar-winner, Fantasia, on the big screen. Some of the most familiar compositions of classical music (The Nutcracker Suite, Rite of Spring, Ave Maria…), performed here by Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra, are given eloquent visual interpretation at the hands of Disney’s gifted animators.


If you like thrillers, then don’t miss The Aura, from Argentinian director Fabián Bielinsky (Nine Queens), in which a taxidermist with epilepsy carries out the perfect heist.

Daniel Burman’s Family Law will have its Sydney premiere at the Festival. Set in Buenos Aires, this is a personal and intimate portrait of fatherhood infused with dry wit and humanism.


Another classic will screen as part of out special focus on novelist Jane Austen: Robert Z. Leonard’s Pride And Prejudice (1940), starring Laurence Olivier and Greer Carson, will be followed by a Q&A with Susannah Fullerton, president of the Jane Austen Society of Australia.

The Closing Night Gala offers another treat for fans of classic English literature with the premiere of Becoming Jane. Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) plays Jane Austen in this new drama starring Julie Walters, Maggie Smith and James McAvoy. This special screening features a Q&A with American writer Jon Spence, whose book inspired the film, and includes snacks, drinks and raffle prizes.


Come cheer the finalists in the first Young at Heart Short Film Awards, which showcase the best new Australian shorts written by, directed by or starring seniors. If you’re a filmmaker, why not submit your film for this prestigious new competition?
