Film & Television Institute says
This year's City of Vincent Film Project documentaries will PREMIERE on Valentines Day in Hyde Park, North Perth. They will be followed by a screening of the iconic 1920's film 'THE GENERAL', starring Buster Keaton (rated G), with a live sound track performed by local musicians Viola Dana.

'The General' is often listed as one of the finest comedic films of all time, featuring beautifully crafted cinematic photography, a thrilling plot and Keaton's trademark dead-pan, perfectly timed comic stunts. Viola Dana features the warm, rich sonic hues of cello, guitar, banjo, drums, tuned percussion and, of course, the viola.

The 3 short documentaries made for The City of Vincent film project are:

'Golden Hour' - What it takes to be a morning presenter on RTR. Writer/Director: Chris Butler, Producer: Kal Englishby

'Swing in Seven' - Mo swings his way to the next chapter of his life by exploring the quirky and vibrant Perth Lindy Hop scene. Writer: Gregg Johnson, Producer: Dominic D'Leno, Director: Caitlan O'Connor

'Viva La Vincent'- A Guiness Book of Records attempt to gather as many people with the same name in the same place at the same time - Vincents in the City of Vincent. Writer: Thomas Baskerville, Producer: Jasmine Leivers, Director: Ashleigh Nicolau

The evening kicks off at 7pm and runs until 10pm, so bring along a picnic or buy a meal from one of the food vendors on site, then sit back to enjoy a great evening of cinema and live music!
