“Zach and I are looking forward to being part of the Festival,” said Zach’s Ceremony director, Alec Doomadgee. “It will be a great opportunity for us to speak directly to people everywhere about our film and its educational programs that have been making a real impact. This is what Reconciliation Week is about.”
“We are hoping that the Festival will inspire lots of discussion with audiences right across Australia and New Zealand,” says FANFORCE TV founder Danny Lachevre. “At most Festivals it is difficult or intimidating for the audience to ask questions or join the conversation. This will remove those barriers and enable everyone to join in from the privacy of their homes.”
