Fire Front + 2 local short films Pure Imagination and Life in Two Words
Employing first hand and archive footage and the clever use of a timeline, rather than a voice over Fire Front makes for a sensational and compelling film experience. It's not a sensationalised documentary. It's amazing. Starts in Peregian. Lest we forget.

Through first-hand footage from those on the ground, FIRE FRONT puts the audience directly on the frontlines of Australia's most devastating bushfire season, delivering a uniquely powerful insight into a disaster that captivated the world. There's no bombastic voice-over. The first hand and archive footage and the clever use of a timeline makes this a sensational film rather than a sensationalised documentary. It's amazing.
In Australia, during the Summer of 2019/2020 the nation was ravaged by bushfires. The toll on the landscape, including its human and animal populations, remains catastrophic to this day and was overtaken by the impact of Covid-19
Thirty-four people across Australia died, including several volunteer firefighters who were on the frontline of this environmental disaster. The bushfires further ignited the global debate on climate change, triggering fractured responses from across the world, and exposing how divisive this issue remains. The human toll and environmental devastation has been a wake-up call.
Built from almost entirely archival footage, FIRE FRONT is a preview of what lies ahead for not just Australians, but everyone around the globe.
Plus we have two short films from local film makers. Pure Imagination by Kenny Waterson a documentary about a local entrepeneur Brad Houstonm as he tries to raise one billion dollars in a bid to launch his dream business ‘Flicks4Good’ and make an impact on the world.”
And Life In Two Words by Director Tam Sainsbury written by Anne Calrk about young Oli who learns that the two words which have brought him misery are the same word which will bring him triumph and joy.
