21 May 2016 — save the date / by Adam Sébire

Carrington Brewery.

Vertical Film Festival fans can circle two dates in their 2016 diaries now!

  • Saturday 30 April — this is the deadline for entries to the Festival (both in and out of competition).  Entries are now open, and are free.
     
  • Saturday 21 May — Festival screening night in the Carrington Brewery, Katoomba, Australia, 8pm.

We're excited to be one of the first events in the Carrington Hotel's atmospheric micro-brewery space, an old power station which was recently renovated to produce boutique beers.

Visitors to the Blue Mountains will probably already know of The Carrington, a grand old hotel perched on the mountain-top, dating back to 1883.  The Katoomba Brewing Company now adjoins it and has beautiful brickwork (around the corner in the picture) on which we'll be mounting our 4 metre-high vertical screen for your viewing pleasure!

As well as enjoying an evening of great tall-screen films, if you're a beer connoisseur you're in luck: the bar will be serving the real thing amidst the hops from 7:30pm, half an hour before the Festival kicks off, as well as at interval and after the announcement of our winners.
