NEWS FROM THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
Former Home & Away actor and now LA-based AA member Erryn Arkin (left) is heading to the Cannes Film Festival with his recently completed short film/television pilot Cell/Phone which he shot in Los Angeles. It has been selected as a short film finalist for screening at the prestigious French festival.
Arkin (who enjoyed a short stint in ‘Summer Bay’ as Mark Gillen) wrote and produced the on-line thriller about a vigilante who uses phone lines to terrorise his victims. The pilot episode has just secured funding to develop it into a full television series.

MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVAL
AA member JEREMY KEWLEY stars in IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES (UNTIL SOMEONE GETS HURT) opening at the 25th Melbourne International Comedy Festival on Wednesday March 30th and running through to mid-April.
Birthdays are meant to be fun. So are gorilla grams. But when one company’s poor taste is mixed with a couple of incompetent cops, fun is the last thing Ren’s having on his big day.
This one-act farce is the third play written by Melbourne playwright Charlie Ranger, the founder of Long Range Theatre. Utilising the talents of Jeremy Kewley (Underbelly Files, Stingers) and Madeleine Harding (I Love You Too), It’s all fun and games offers refreshingly original comedy on stage.
If you’re someone who enjoys the ridiculous, possibly doesn’t know what the hell a gorilla gram is or maybe someone who just wants to support local artists, then this is a show you cannot afford to miss.
Of course if you’re none of these things, the same still applies!
It plays at the Northcote Town Hall (Studio 2 – 189 High Street, Northcote) nightly (no Mondays) at 7pm (finished by 8pm). All tickets are just $17.00, purchased at the door.
