Young at Heart Film Festival 2015
- WYZA Life
The 'Young at Heart Festival' started out as a small Sydney event in 1995.
Now, we celebrate it's 10th anniversary with the festival not only premiering in Sydney, but also in Melbourne and Canberra.
A celebration of mature Australians
The only event of its kind, Young at heart is a film festival dedicated entirely to seniors, their friends and relatives. For a unique program of a mix of international premieres and classic films on the big screen, Young at heart is a festival that mature Australians can truly call their own.
“Australians over sixty are an incredibly diverse, adventurous and film-savvy audience,” says Young at Heart Film Festival Director Matt Ravier. “It’s been a real joy designing and programming a festival for - and in consultation with - seniors."
What films to expect
Audiences will be among the first to see a stellar line-up of 12 feature films, from the Oscar nominated, Cannes-winning Russian thriller 'Leviathan' to Alan Rickman’s period drama 'A little chaos', starring Kate Winslet.
The event is also a chance to see new prints of beloved classics such as 'The way we were' and documentaries such as 'Hip Hop eration'.
"From black & white classics to gems from the 70s, from documentaries to fiction, from WWI dramas to star-studded romantic comedies, there’s something there for everyone.”

Screenings will take place March 14th to 22nd 2015, in Sydney at Palace Verona and Palace Norton St, in Melbourne at Palace Balwyn and Palace Brighton Bay, and in Canberra at Palace Electric.
