MDFF: Short Session 3

Searching for a Friend
By Guillym Davenport
When the memory of a lost friend is brought into focus for the filmmaker, they set out to try and find them again. What unfolds is a coming of age story about memory and the things we leave behind for the important people in our lives

Stranger in the Crowd
By Matt Alpass
'Stranger in the Crowd’ documents Phil, a man who fell into a life of performing as Elvis (amongst others) for the pure joy and entertainment of people from all walks of life. This is not a film about an Elvis impersonator, but a snippet into the life of a man who strives to help people escape their own realities - whilst also escaping his.

Citizen of the Great Barrier Reef
By Tom Abood
This documentary follows the work of a team of scientists, explorers and conservationists as they join forces on an ocean adventure to survey the effects of climate change on one of the most remote and rarely visited regions of the Great Barrier Reef. Calling for immediate global action, their work offers hope that our coral reefs can be rescued and protected for generations to come.

The Shape of Air
By Rob Layton
Willy Nicholls is one of the few surfboard airbrush artists left in Australia. With his dog Ruby constantly at his side, Willy continues a craft that started in the 1970s when psychedelia and surf culture merged for a unique - and now dying - art form.

Salty Sea Dog
By Lara van Raay
Madeleine Habib has spent her life in remote and sometimes dangerous situations, as she uses her skills as a Master Mariner to do work that many others wouldn’t dare to.

Murder on the Dance Floor
By Louise Bertoncini
It’s 1925 and hundreds of people are dancing the foxtrot in Western Australia’s Government House, when BANG! A gun goes off. People turn to see jilted fiancée, Audrey Jacobs, holding the pistol while standing over the bleeding body of her ex, Cyril Gidley. What should have been an open and shut case proved to be a very different story.

My Dad Elvis
By Eric Piccoli
I always thought that having an Elvis impersonating dad was something normal. As I got older, I quickly realized that it was all but that. It's actually quite special. At 70 years old, my dad decides to hit the stage one last time, to return as Elvis.
