Bill Leimbach, leading Australian filmmaker and producer of the next Australian film epic, “Waltzing Matilda”, has not only confirmed filming to commence in Winton and Longreach later this year, but also his commitment to attend the inaugural festival. Festival organisers met with Bill in Sydney last week to discuss the Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival. Bill will host some storytelling fireside chats and share some of his remarkable tales about Banjo. And for all aspiring film makers he will be appearing as a celebrity judge in the short film making competition. Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook and register for the Behind The Scenes e-newsletter for latest announcements.
