5.30pm Panorama #4: Australian15+
A wonderfully diverse collection of new Australian films not featuring
in competition. Perhaps they arrived too late for competition selection,
perhaps they had the jury battling it out on the floor(!), but these
films in all their eclectic glory are just too good not to be screened
in a festival that celebrates animation in all its myriad forms.
