Tonight: Two Short Film Screenings, Followed by Q-and-A with Director Nicholas Verso

Nicholas Verso

Filmmaker Nicholas Verso began his career directing Super 8 music videos for musicians such as Wendy Rule, Kerri Simpson, Beki & The Bullets and The Cat Empire. His first feature film — MAX: A Cautionary Tale — which he wrote and directed, premiered in 2003 at festivals around Australia, the US (screening at Walt Disney World and winning Best New Director at the New York Independent Film & Video Festival) and Europe.

Tonight, he will be at The Bookworm to show two of his short films, The Last Time I Saw Richard (funded through Screen Australia’s Springboard program and winner of Best Short Film at the 2014 AACTA Awards and Best Emerging Filmmaker at the Melbourne Queer Film Festival) and Flight (a Tropfest finalist). Afterwards, he’ll answer questions about these films and his work in general, which also includes the short films Hugo (winner of the Grand Prize for Fantasy at the Rhode Island International Film Festival) and three Apocalypse Bear webisodes (funded by the City of Melbourne).
