Tracks to open Adelaide Film Festival

18 July 2013

 Tracks, starring internationally acclaimed actress Mia Wasikowska and filmed in South Australia, will have its premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival Opening Night at the Adelaide Festival Theatre on October 10, with tickets on sale now through BASS.

The Adelaide Film Festival Opening Night Gala is always an event not to be missed, and our 10 year celebration promises to be no different. Expect red carpet, camels and the world premiere of this epic Australian film.

Tracks, starring Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) and Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls) and directed by John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don’t Live Here Anymore), tells the inspirational true story of Robyn Davidson’s 2700km solo trek from the harsh centre of Australia to the Indian Ocean, aided only by her faithful canine companion Diggity, four camels and the National Geographic photographer who chronicled this epic modern adventure.

Tracks producers Emile Sherman and Iain Canning said: "Having shot the film largely in South Australia, and received such great support from the Adelaide Film Festival as well as the South Australian Film Corporation, we’re thrilled to be able to premiere the film at the Festival. It has been a long journey to bring this story to the screen and we look forward to sharing it with the Festival audience."

Following the screening, make tracks to the Freemasons Hall for a star-studded gala after-party, to celebrate 10 years of the Adelaide Film Festival and the array of magnificent Australian and international films we are presenting in 2013.
