Rushworth wartime film release next month

October 13, 2017

Short film Fire in the Belly, which was filmed in Rushworth, will be shown at a special community screening next month.

The final touches are being put on a short film about a fiery event in wartime Rushworth.

A special community screening of Fire in the Belly will be held next month, with seats full.

The film is a fictionalised account of tensions surrounding conscription during World War I.

Rushworth resident Angie Russi helped develop the idea with her filmmaker daughter Cecelia Hedditch.

The idea has taken a long time, with a funding shortfall stopping production, before a crowdfunding campaign filled the budget hole.

‘‘We really hope people enjoy the film,’’ Ms Russi said.

‘‘We have tried to distil a large story into a 25-minute short film.’’

Filming had finished and Ms Hedditch was working on the final edit.

The community screening is on November 11 at 11.30am.
