COMPELLING NEW LEXUS SHORT FILM AT THE SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL
Lexus and The Weinstein Company recently premiered the second of four films as part of the latest Lexus Short Films series at Sydney Film Festival. The series aims to support the accomplishments of emerging filmmakers and also encourage the art of storytelling. This time the Lexus-inspired theme is ‘Anticipation’, which prompted thousands of submissions from talented filmmakers all over the world.
Up against this very impressive competition, one of those selected was director, Damian Walshe-Howling’s short film entitled MESSiAH. Featuring a talented cast, it highlights a playful collision of cultures that takes place in the spectacular Australian wilderness. The director attended the premiere to share the story of how MESSiAH came to fruition and to celebrate his achievement as a part of the third Lexus Short Film series.
