Leela Varghese is the writer and director of the kind of films beloved by film curators wanting shorts with the comedic appeal & diverse characters that speak to the next generation. In this session, she will use her very recent film Furbulous and Crush as examples. Crush won Best Screenplay at 2019 Tropfest and was part of AFF 2020 Made in Adelaide program.

This session is available for general public bookings. Tertiary students, industry professionals and families are encouraged to participate and join the conversation!

Update: 21/07

In light of the COVID-19 lockdown beginning on July 21st, the Adelaide Film Festival Youth is disappointed to announce that the inaugural edition of the festival, due to begin on July 25th, will not proceed as planned. 
Safety is our primary concern.
We are consulting with SA Health and Department for Education to explore potential alternative presentation dates and modes, and encourage audiences to hold onto their tickets until contacted by our Box Office team.
