Kenneth Moraleda with Filipino Director Brillante Mendoza, Filmmaker Kan Lume and Producer Carolyn Johnson at Pusan International Film Festival

From Hollywood Reporter:

The six features that will screen in the coming days at Pusan include Kriv Stenders’ real-time urban drama, “Boxing Day,” about a former prisoner having his family around for a visit that goes dangerously wrong; Peter Carstairs’ “September,” a look at the breakdown of a relationship between an aboriginal youth and his childhood friend, who’s the son of his station boss; and “Lucky Miles,” a gentle comedy that follows the plight of Iraqi and Cambodian refugees who are abandoned in remote western Australia.

They are part of a raft of films this year that have found critical acclaim and favor with festival audiences worldwide, as well as at Australia’s own festivals. “Lucky Miles” for one, this year received the audience awards as best film at the Sydney Film Festival and a special jury prize at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
