"I am so excited to bring Destination Arnold to my hometown of Rockhampton,” she said.

Five feature-length films will air during the Travelling Film Festival, from Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13.

The films:

  • Up for Love, is a French romantic comedy starring the Oscar winning Jean Dujardin (The Artist), and a remake of the Argentinian comedy Corazón de León about a couple trying to find love in a world of petty intolerance.
  • The Family Fang, Jason Bateman's second feature film also starring alongside Nicole Kidman, is a funny and bittersweet family drama about a brother and sister in search of their missing famous parents.
  • Destination Arnold, the debut feature by Sascha Ettinger, follows two Sydney-based Indigenous women with a dream to make it to the Arnolds - an amateur bodybuilding competition being held in Australia for the first time.
  • The Commune, a tense Thomas Vinterberg film set in 1970s Copenhagen, where a couple's experiment in group living reveals faultlines in their own relationship, starring Trine Dyrholm, winner of Best Actress at Berlin International Film Festival 2016.
  • The Olive Tree, is an earthy quietly stirring Spanish fable about an emotional journey to recover a family tree, from the team behind 2010's Oscar-shortlisted Even the Rain.
