Only one week to go until the 'Sundance of Australia' and 2011 IF Award winning film festival, the Dungog Film Festival, will showcase the great Australian film industry in the picturesque Hunter Valley town of Dungog from the 29 June - 1 July.

Just announced is the screening of REDD INC. A film by director Daniel Krige (West, Twisted Tales) and starring Nicholas Hope (Bad Boy Bubby), Kelly Paterniti (Packed to the Rafters), Sam Reid (The Jesters) and Alan Dukes (Beneath Hill 60).  Following on from CRAWL on Saturday night, REDD INC. will be the second part of our Fright Night. In the spirit of SAW and HOSTEL, REDD INC. will test audience's mettle as six office workers are chained to their desks by their demented 'regional manager'.
They will need to work hard to prove their worth and escape punishment.
Director Daniel Krige, writer Anthony O'Connor and producer Jonathon Green will be guests at the festival.

On Saturday 30 June the people of Dungog will take to the streets with the annual street parade, this year themed after last year's blockbuster movie RED DOG. Residents are invited to join the parade with their own red dog or other pet pooch where the apparently incorruptible local celebrity resident Roy Bean will be judging for Best Red Dog and Best Dog, in the sub category 'A Class of their Own'.

In addition to the canine contingent there will be 100 members of the local police force marching to celebrate 150 years of the NSW State Police Force, the oldest police force in Australia, the 50 members of the Singleton Town Band, marching children, floats, decorated push bikes and the greatest representation of Ukulele's ever seen in Dungog. Not to be missed!!

The full Dungog program is available at
