Margaret and David to Host Ultimate Film Quiz Night

29 September 2014

Adelaide Film Festival patrons and movie critic legends Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton are coming to town next month to host Adelaide’s biggest movie quiz night.

The dynamic duo will oversee proceedings at the Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) event to be held on Friday October 31, from 6.30pm, at the AFF Principal Partner Channel Nine studios in North Adelaide.

Margaret and David recently announced their retirement from television after an incredible 28 years together and will record their final episode of ABC’s At The Movies in December.

Margaret said today: “David and I are thrilled to once again be heading south to the always innovative Adelaide Film Festival to take part in what should be a very competitive and entertaining event.

“We’re looking forward to meeting supporters of the Festival whose passion for film and film facts, trivia even, will challenge even David’s extensive knowledge! This Festival, acknowledged around the world, is worth supporting so we hope to see you on the night.”

Adelaide Film Festival Festival Director and CEO Amanda Duthie said it was an honor to welcome the AFF ambassadors back to Adelaide before they record their finale.

“AFF is excited to be presenting this special event to celebrate all things on screen – or at least what we can recall before the buzzer goes” Amanda said. “Margaret and David  – first name only required – could have filled the Adelaide Oval for this event and we are so happy they are running this Quiz showdown. Many thanks to our partners for their generosity and contributions for the amazing prizes for the raffle and the silent auction. We will be announcing these over the next few weeks.”

Tickets for the movie quiz night are on sale from 10am Monday 29th September. Click here to buy tickets.

AFF is a nationally celebrated screen event that has been privileged to support the careers of many South Australian filmmakers and artists.  It will return in 2015, running from 15-25 October and the film trivia evening is one of many events in the lead up to the Festival.
