Cast, crew visit students
Cornerstone Christian College students were treated to a visit from the cast and crew of CinefestOZ film prize finalist Three Summers yesterday morning.
Executive producer Mark Anderson joined actor Kelton Pell, actress Nichola Balestri, and the indigenous dance troupe Foundation for Indigenous Sustainable Health at the school for a question-and- answer session and meet-and- greet.
The dance troupe performed a series of traditional dances before teaching a few students from the crowd.
Pell — who is also heavily involved with IndigifestOZ — said the importance of educating students about culture could not be understated.
“I think it’s a lost opportunity if workshops like this don’t happen, and what better opportunity to do them while you have artists and actors come down for Cinefest?” he said.
“It’s important to share not only our culture but also the work ethic and how enthusiastic we are in what we do in our work, in film and television.”
