The Sunnyboy at Melbourne International Film Festival

The Sunnyboy is having its second film festival screening at MIFF on August 9 & 11. http://tix.miff.com.au/s_THESUNNYBOY.htm. The Sydney event at the Opera House was a sell-out and the film receives a standing ovation by the 1,000 plus crowd. A great night to remember. 2 hours later the Sunnyboys played to a sold-out Concert Hall.
