‘6 Festivals’ is a new feature film which will premiere in cinemas in 2022 and is the first local production for Paramount+.
Maxie, Summer and James are three mid-teen best friends whose friendship has been brought up short by the diagnosis James has brain cancer. We meet them at a raving music festival in the immediate aftermath of this deadly bombshell to find out this is the first of many festivals they plan to escape to – to deny or keep at bay the reality they must ultimately face.
Principal filming for this feature film took place earlier this year at music festivals in locations including Wollongong and the Sunshine Coast.
It will have a soundtrack of some of Australia’s hottest music acts, some of whom will feature in cameo appearances including G Flip, Dune Rats, Alison Wonderland, Bliss n Eso, Peking Duk, PNAU, Example, Hooligan Hefs, The Amity Affliction, JessB, B Wise and Running Touch.
Earlier this month MCTV provided extras for the film. Congratulations to everyone who had the opportunity to work on this project, which is going to be an amazing blend of film and music – can’t wait.
