SWIFF swings into action through uncharted territory with Jungle, a compelling true story of strength and survival in the wilds of the Amazon, from acclaimed Australian director Greg McLean, starring a post-Potter Daniel Radcliffe.
While hitchhiking in Bolivia in the early 1980’s, 22 year old backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg meets a mysterious man, Karl Ruprechter, who guides Yossi and his two friends – teacher Marcus Stamm and photographer Kevin Gale- deep into the uncharted Amazon for an adventure of a lifetime. What begins as a life-changing dream adventure into the emerald, becomes a test of endurance against nature’s formidable forces and the fight to survive.
Based on real-life experiences from the highly acclaimed memoir by Yossi Ghinsberg, Jungle offers an exciting blend of nail-biting urgency with authentic moments of heart and humanity. Featuring dynamic performances from Daniel Radcliffe, and Aussie talents Alex Russell (Chronicle, Unbroken) and Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door).
Join us from 6.00pm for red carpet arrival, with complimentary drinks and canapes from 6.30pm, prior to the 7pm film.

To help celebrate the program launch we will be screening the charming new Australian comedy, ‘That’s Not Me’, starring rising local talent Alice Foulcher in a dual role that has wowed festival audiences across the world.
‘A stunning exploration of identity, the industry and the thirst for fame…the perfect blend of comedy and tragedy.’– Huffington Post
Polly’s dreams of making it as an actor are shattered when her identical twin sister Amy catapults to international stardom. Mistaken for her famous sister at every turn, Polly scrambles to catch up – juggling woeful auditions, painfully awkward dates and her underwhelming job at the local cinema. Running out of options, Polly takes an ill-advised trip to the coalface of celebrity dreams: Los Angeles, California. There Polly begins to realise that maybe there’s no such thing as ‘making it’ after all.
With a breakout performance from Alice Foulcher in dual roles as Polly and Amy, and backed by a sparkling ensemble cast of established and emerging actors, ‘That’s Not Me’ is a feel-good comedy about the difference between failure and disappointment. Writer/director Gregory Erdstein and actor/writer Foulcher burst onto screens as a fresh new voice in Australian cinema, with their smart, hilarious and touching debut feature.
Director Gregory Erdstein and Writer and Lead Actor Alice Foulcher will be in attendance to introduce the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A.
