GREGORY DOLGOPOLOV Interview by GREG KING
INNER WEST FILM FESTIVAL – interview with GREGORY DOLGOPOLOV
In one of The Inner West’s most unifying and collective moments yet, this pulsating slice of urban Sydney will now play host to its very own film festival, with The Inner West Film Fest rolling out for the very first time from 31 March through to 2 April. Across venues including the legendary Marrickville Golf Club, Dendy Cinemas Newtown, and Palace Norton Street in Leichhardt, The Inner West Film Fest will tap into the values of the area and boast a diverse, inclusive and utterly fascinating selection of local feature film premieres from Australia and abroad; an on-point opening night screening and party. There is also a short film competition showcasing works made in and about The Inner West from the best up and coming filmmakers in the area, and a couple of retro screenings – Sergio Leone’s epic western Once Upon A Time In The West and the locally made Erskineville Kings, starring Hugh Jackman and Joel Edgerton.
Greg had a chat with programmer Gregory Dolgopolov to find out more about this inaugural film festival.
