One of the most delightful festivals on the circuit is the APIA Young at Heart Film Festival, dedicated to older cinema-goers.
This year’s program kicks off tomorrow with a special afternoon tea, followed by a screening of Never Too Late starring James Cromwell, Shane Jacobson, Jacki Weaver and Dennis Waterman. The story revolves around four old war buddies going on one last mission-to break out of their nursing home. Tea begins at 3 pm with the screening at 4, at Palace Nova Eastend.

Many films in the program are drawn from last year’s international festivals. These include:
Happy Ending from the Scandinavian Film Festival:
Military Wives, Hope Gap and Tell It To The Bees, from the British Film Festival:
Other films include As Green As It Gets, Amazing Leonardo and Hearts and Bones. As well as what will likely be a sell-out: a reprise of David Lean’s classic, Brief Encounter.
There is also one documentary in the mix, Repeat Attenders, about Broadway superfans.
The Young at Heart Film Festival runs from 19th February to 4th March at Palace Nova Eastend and Prospect.
