Guy Pearce, Christopher Kirby, Michala Banas, Angus Sampson and Genevieve Morris: what do all of these names have in common? Aside from being among Australia’s favourite on-screen stars, these names are just a few of the personalities to be featured in a one-day film benefit at The Capitol theatre on Sunday 8 March.
Wow, what a special podcast. Sally McLean is a successful actor, writer, director and producer. Her list of achievements is staggering and her upcoming projects are definitely ones to look out for. Sally is also the curator of ‘Shorts Relief: Flicks for the fires’ a film festival she has put together in order to raise money for Victoria’s wildlife and other bushfire related charities. The festival will be held at the newly renovated Capitol Theatre in Melbourne on the 8th of March. So naturally, when she told me about this epic event I had to get her on Big Wonder.
Digitally disruptive filmmakers are taking over Melbourne’s Capitol Theatre to raise funds for Australia’s bushfire crisis. “The core team consists of three Melbourne-based businesses and organisations – Incognita Enterprises, The Lost Artist and Melbourne WebFest, who are banding together in the best Aussie tradition to help our fellow citizens and our unique wildlife at this time of trauma,” says Event Producer, Sally Mclean.
Taking over Melbourne’s Capitol Theatre for a one-day-only short film festival, Shorts Relief: Flicks for the Fires is the independent film industry sector’s response to Australia’s current bushfire crisis. The event will consist of short film and web series screenings, industry panellists and special guest speakers.

Event producer Sally McLean of Incognita Enterprises says, “it has been just wonderful to see how quickly and generously everyone has jumped on board to help with this event. It really is a testament to the Aussie sense of community and spirit of helping out a mate.”
The curated film festival will celebrate the work being produced by Victorian filmmakers. Featured short film screenings include works by Thomas Field (A Rare Breed), Ben Dean (KITT), Jesse Leaman (Lorne), and Emily Medbury (Mycelium Made).
Event producer Sally McLean of Incognita Enterprises says, “alongside our generous partners, we have a core team of eight working on the event, all of whom come from festival organisation and event management backgrounds. We have developed every facet of the event with a view of bringing the members of our local film community together to show our support for bushfire relief, while simultaneously celebrating the amazing talent we have in the Victorian film sector.”
