Organisers of the 10th annual Gold Coast Film Festival have managed to secure Harry Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps who play Fred and George Weasley in the internationally popular series to attend the festival. Almost six months after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 hit the big screen, fans on the Gold Coast will get the chance to see an encore screening of the final installment of the series introduced by two of the stars. The film screens at Birch Carroll & Coyle Australia Fair Cinemas in Southport on Saturday 21 April at 8.30pm.
Fans are encouraged to dress in Harry Potter costume to celebrate the film and be in with a chance to win a prize for Best Costume. Tickets are $12 and can be bought under the Australia Fair session times at www.eventcinemas.com.au. The Gold Coast Film Festival got underway on April 19 and runs until April 29 - the festival aims to celebrate the local industry and includes a wide range of films screening daily at Birch Carroll and Coyle Australia Fair Cinemas, free outdoor cinema events and seminars and workshops. Check out some of the homegrown talent on show - there's plenty of Australian productions on the programme!
