Luis had the privilege of volunteering at this years 2018 Noosa International Film Festival (NIFF) this year!
“It was a fantastic event. It feels so good to give back to the community where my career all began,” he said.
This year the festival welcomed Heath Davis and his new feature film, Book Week.
“Book Week is a brilliant film, shot on a really tight budget. The whole audience was in hysterics half the time. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves!”
During the Q&A Heath mentioned some of his actors paid for a role to support the film. Of course, the intention was to also give the actors the footage for showreel material etc.
Luis also had the chance to mingle with many industry professionals and gained insight into up-and-coming projects.
“It’s always inspiring to meet budding filmmakers at these events. They’re always full of hope and excitement. It fills me with joy to see the industry isn’t so dark and gloomy as some make it out to be.”
NIFF film submissions will be open soon, so keep an eye out: https://www.niff.com.au/
