World Cup Wednesdays.
2014 - Australia's first football film festival.
localfc x golden age cinema + BAR
World Cup Wednesdays was created as a collaboration between LOCALFC and Golden Age Cinema in Sydney's Surry Hills as a weekly tribute to the most important thing going on in our lives at the time - the 2014 FIFA World Cup. We curated and coordinated the film festival including the most inspirational and original football-inspired films created in the past ten years. Being the second to screen the highly acclaimed documentary, Next Goal Wins, in all of Australia after the Sydney Film Festival, our screening included a one on one interview with the film's director, Steve Jamison and our own Chad Gibson. The festival was a huge success with sold-out screenings and weekly pre-drink round-ups in Our Golden Age's bar. The festival included sponsorship from Nike, a premier screening of their animated World Cup advert and Socceroos jersey give-aways. Special guests were in attendance from A-League clubs across the country and major finals and Socceroos matches were aired live in the cinema.
