Byron film festivities

AFI winner and rising Aussie film star Stephen Curry will attend the opening gala night of the 2008 Byron Bay Film Festival next Friday, February 29.

Hell introduce the world premiere screening of his new short film You Better Watch Out a wickedly dark comedy about two disgruntled brothers who have a score to settle with Santa Claus.

The feature film for the evening will be the world premiere of Monkey Puzzle, an intense drama about friendship and resolving the past as five friends go on a journey into the Blue Mountains to find the worlds rarest tree.

With an acrobatic aerial display from Circus Arts, a catered after-party and door prizes for the best dressed in red, the evening is a showbiz, red carpet affair.

The third annual Byron Bay Film Festival features nine days of films.

Opening night tickets are $35 and are available pre-sale from the Byron Community Centre. Or by calling 6685 6807.
