Over The Fence

The acclaimed Australian film festival, Over The Fence, celebrates its 16th birthday by making its UK debut in Digbeth tomorrow.

Over The Fence aims to celebrate new and independent filmmakers, a mission which fits perfectly within Digbeth.

Hosted by Friction Arts, the official festival programme will be proceeded by an evening of West Midlands-made comedy films and performance, including screenings of Evil Resident, cult classic The Westerner, and the newly-discovered Battle of the Lickey Hills – a comedy documentary screened for the first time in the city.

Exploring the themes of death, love and desire, the selected films being screened in Digbeth include movies from Australia, America, Europe and the UK:
