Over April 27-29, about 300 people attended the Love, Art & Revolution Film Festival, directed by Jacqui North Productions and co-sponsored by Green Left and 107 Projects, an artist-led community space provider.

Four sessions of short films were selected from more than 3000 entries from around the world and each was followed by a discussion led by a panel of activists and a popular vote for three best films.

The festival featured cultural performances from the Chilean and Kurdish communities and artist and veteran Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras costume designer Rene Rivas created a special installation, including a spectacular haute couture creation made from recycled copies of Green Left.

North told Green Left the films will be available for screening in other cities.
