 The World of Film in Australia - on the Internet Updated Wednesday March 25, 2020 


Tom Cowan’s highly acclaimed low budget Australian drama, Orange Love Story, will make cinema history on March 6, 2005 when the film screens almost simultaneously at two festivals on opposite sides of the world – London and Sanctuary Cove, Queensland – as well as being launched to a world wide audience on the internet, in the Aussie CineFest section of CineClix.com, a leader in digital film distribution working with Urban Cinefile.

Screening at the Barbican Centre at the London Australian Film Festival at 2pm on Saturday March 5, Orange Love Story is also screening at the inaugural Sanctuary Cove Film Festival in Queensland at 3pm on Sunday March 6; with the time difference between England and Australia, the film will be screening at two ends of the world within just a few hours. 

At the same time, the film will make its ‘wwworldwide’ debut on the internet, available to broadband users everywhere, to download and own for lifetime enjoyment on their computer’s hard drive, for US$5.99. 

Orange Love Story, which was the Opening Night Film at the 2004 Melbourne International Film Festival, was written by Adam Bowen and Tom Cowan from a collection of stories from the people of Orange, in country NSW, and fashioned into a film about interconnecting lives and relationships. The non-professional cast are also drawn from Orange. The film has had a short, single cinema release after the Melbourne festival screening. Writing in The Age, award winning film critic Adrian Martin said it was “one of the best Australian films of the year… it achieves a subtle alchemy: its small, unforced moments of conflict, resolution and epiphany are graced with an aura of transcendence.”
