Kai Smythe is looking forward to the 2017 Peninsula Short Film Fest (February 3-5). The 2016 winner will, however, play a completely different role 12 months on from his win.

This year Kai is designing a Mercedes-Benz photo booth for the event, based on his artwork.  Festival goers will be able to snap a selfie with Kai in the booth and share via social media.  It is shaping up, Kai says, to be “a lot of fun”. “I’ll be making it myself,” he explains. “I’m a set builder as well as a filmmaker. The photo booth will be made in the style of my films.”

The 2017 Peninsula Short Film Fest is gearing up to be an extravaganza. A star studded line-up of guests will head to the Village Green in Rosebud including Jessica Marais (The Wrong Girl, Love Child), Sigrid Thornton, Lachy Hulme (Offspring), Nicole Da Silva (Wentworth), Shane Jacobson (The Dressmaker, Kenny) and Director Wayne Blair (Redfern Now, The Sapphires).

PSFF runs across three days in February with a bumper program including:
