Home and Away stars surprise festival goers
TELEVISION presenter Kayne Tremills and Home and Away stars Kyle Pryor (who plays Nate Cooper) and Lisa Gormley (who plays Bianca Scott) arrived at the Capricorn Film Festival tonight much to the festival goers' surprise.
Kayne Tremills famously known for his Australian children's television programme Studio 3 hosted the night keeping the audience entertained throughout the whole event and had a seat in the judging panel.
Kyle and Lisa as well as editor of FILMINK Australian Film Magazine Dov Kornits also made up the judges panel.
Kyle said although he loved a good story line he was focusing on technical elements of the films.
"There's nothing better than a compelling story line and build-up of characters," he said.
"But sometimes simplicity is better, raw emotion coming from an honest place is what makes a good quality film and what I'll be looking for tonight.
"My favourite genre is mixture of action and drama - it's always good to have a bit of both too." Lisa said would be looking for autobiography type films.
"I'm one of those people who can become very emotional about something if I see it from that person's point of view," she said.
"To me - true stories are always the most effective films because they draw the audience in straight away."
Television presenter Kayne Tremills said he was a comedy lover.
"I'll be looking for something that will make me laugh - comedy brings out the best in people," he said.
The film festival began at 5 pm and will continue to run throughout the night at the Gladstone Marina.
There's still time - head on down with a blanket and a pillow and get comfortable for movie night.
