THE BIG KITTY screens at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival

It’s been awhile since I’ve reported on Tom Alberts and Lisa Barmby’s debut indie feature, THE BIG KITTY. Along with other Melbourne artists, Shane Jones and I play supporting roles in the film. Well, here is an update worth waiting for.

THE BIG KITTY will be screened at the 74th Cannes Film Festival, as part of Seléction Cinéma des Antipodes, Cannes Cinéphiles, running from 6 - 17 JulyLisa and Tom, who are currently based in France, will be in attendance.

The screening dates and cinemas are:

Vendredi   jul  19.30 Le Raimu

Samedi  10 jul  18.30 Alexandre III

Dimanche  11 jul  12.00 Studio 13

Additionally, in late June, THE BIG KITTY was included in the official programme of Australia now, a cultural celebration organised by the Embassy of Australia, Paris.

Sadly, Monsieur Baptiste, THE BIG KITTY himself, recently passed away. What a wonderful tribute to him this film is, as it continues its amazing run.
