This delightful programme includes the moving Bama from talented emerging indigenous filmmaker Jahvis Loveday, whose family are of the Djiru people of Mission Beach.
The film’s title is inspired by the BAMA people which means “Rainforest Mob, or Community” in Far North QLD.
Bama was awarded the Jury Award for Best Short Film and the Audience Award earlier this year as part of Flickerfest’s Byron All Shorts programme at the Flickerfest Tour screening in Mullumbimby.
Throughout October the Flickerfest Tour takes a journey through the Western Downs region of South East Queensland, stopping off in Wandoan on the 16th October, Chinchilla on the 22nd October, Bell on the 23rd October and Meandarra on the 30th October with the Best of Australian Shorts programme.
