Tango Underpants to open Flickerfest 2014
Tango Underpants Pty Ltd is delighted to announce that its highly anticipated romantic comedy, Tango Underpants, will tonight host its official World Premiere at the 23rd Flickerfest International Short Film Festival 2014.
A playful and engrossing short film, Tango Underpants was written by legendary screenwriter John Collee (HAPPY FEET, MASTER AND COMMANDER) and stars Emma Booth (PARKER, CLUBLAND, Underbelly: Golden Mile).
It was co-directed by Perth siblings Miranda Edmonds and Khrob Edmonds; photographed by award-winning cinematographer Denson Baker ACS (ORANGES AND SUNSHINE, THE BLACK BALLOON); and proudly produced by Feisty Dame Productions' CEO Tania Chambers and Impian Films' CEO Stephen Van Mil.
Having already received rave reviews from its hometown preview screenings, the Tango team says they are delighted to be screening at such a prestigious festival.
According to Miranda Edmonds, “Khrob and I are thrilled that Tango Underpants is playing Opening Night at Flickerfest tonight – it is such an honour. We hope the film brings the audience a smile and a new perspective on their underwear!"
Tango Underpants tells the story of Carolyn (Emma Booth) – a young Australian backpacker who, after a bad breakup and too long on the road, has completely lost her mojo. However, all of that changes when she reaches South America. Here she discovers, not only the wonders of the Tango dance and the people but also, the vital importance of the right underwear.
Flickerfest’s Grand Opening Night traditionally features films from a variety of the festival’s programmes to provide a full introduction to the season. Tango Underpants is one of five films showing as a ‘festival highlight’ and the only Australian film. It is also screening on Thursday 16 January (8.45pm).
Flickerfest runs 10-19 January 2014 at Bondi Beach, Sydney. For a full programme of events and screenings, visit www.flickerfest.com.au.
