A Boat Retold - Screenings in Tasmania 6-9 February 2015



A Boat Retold screens next week, 6-9 February 2015, in Tasmania, which we think marks the furthest screening from where it was shot.

It will be presented at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival by Ian Stephen, who stars in the film and got the whole project going back in May 2010. Ian will screen the film at his readings, the first of which takes place on Friday 6 February at the Dechaineaux Theatre in Hobart at 6pm.

For more info, go to the festival's site, where you can download a programme.
