Estonian Programming at Fantastic Film Festival April 2021 – Sydney 19th, Melbourne 22nd & 24th

A home for mind-breakers, trend-setters, trailblazers, and envelope-pushers, Fantastic Film Festival Australia returns with a program of weird and wonderful cinema to challenge and delight audiences from April 16th at the Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn and Ritz Cinemas in Randwick.

A highlight of the festival is Estonian animated feature

The Old Man Movie

This zany, animated film follows a small town and the chaos that ensues when their prized cow goes missing.  A stop-motion, crazed Shaun the Sheep-style spirit fuels the absurdity that directors Oskar Lehemaa and Mikk Mägi have been refining for the last decade. This is their epic first feature, and its lowbrow surrealism takes animated comedy on a wonderfully insane journey: jump on board for a laugh-filled ride and jaw-dropping madness.
