FILM FRIENDLY FREO ATTRACTION FOR MOVIE MAKERS

Posted in city of fremantle, creative, culture, local government, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on February 23, 2019

 

The agenda for this Wednesday’s Ordinary Council meeting of the City of Fremantle is huge-250 pages long!- with most items having already been debated at various council committees.

But one item stands out for me and that is the suggestion by Councillor Hannah Fitzhardinge  to consider a Film Friendly Freo policy.

ELECTED MEMBER SUMMARY
The City of Fremantle is a film friendly location and it would be a positive step forward to support the professional film and television industry to use the City for this purpose.
Fremantle’s iconic locations, from our beaches to our working port and heritage West End, provide an abundance of attractive settings for films of all types. A ‘Film Friendly Freo’ policy will make it quicker and easier for film-makers to gain approvals and support from the City of Fremantle to film in our city.”

Many cities in Australia do charge fees for commercial photo shoots and filming, so Hannah Fithardinge’s suggestion might attract more film productions to Fremantle. It is important though that the city would get credit for its generosity, with a prominent mention that the movie was shot on location in Fremantle, free of charge.

I can’t wait for Hollywood and Bollywood to discover Freo! 😍

A deaf mugger takes along his sign interpreter if he wants his victims to understand that they are being mugged. A woman with a prosthetic leg loves shoe shopping. A dog relays the experience of involuntary admission to a public psychiatric ward.

These are some of the compelling stories from around the world that will feature in The Other Film Festival in Fremantle in October. DADAA has teamed up with Arts Access Victoria to bring The Other Film Festival to Western Australia for the first time.

A trailblazing event that features film, presentations and industry panels by, with and about people with disability, this festival has screened powerful and provocative Australian and international films in a fully accessible program since 2004.

Along with the curated program of films from the Melbourne festival, DADAA is proud to present the inaugural Act-Belong-Commit WA Stories showcase of the best WA short films made by DADAA artists.

DADAA arts partner Screenwest will present two engaging panels in the festival to discuss and debate aspects of disability screen culture, with leading representatives from the film sector.

NOTRE DAME UNI ACADEMY AWARD AD

Posted in education, fremantle, learning, notre dame university, western australia by freoview on August 27, 2016

notre dame

 

This very impressive full-page advertisement of Notre Dame University in the West Australian caught my eye this morning, as it looks like the promotion of an Oscar winning movie. The Lunchpack of Notre Dame maybe because the Fremantle uni students can enjoy all the quirky cafes and shops in town?

Notre Dame is no doubt a very popular university in Australia and Fremantle as is shown in the Good Universities Guide of 2017 again.

Notre Dame University received five-star ratings for:

*  Overall quality of education

*  Teaching quality

* Learning engagement

*  Student support

*  Skills development

*  Graduate employment

*  Median graduate salary

I love having Notre Dame in Fremantle as it has significantly revitalised the historic West End of Fremantle, and they are a very nice organisation to deal with, as I know from my own experience with them.
