Please join us from 6pm for the Opening Night reception. 

Ali’s arranged marriage is looming, but he loves someone else. What’s a Muslim cleric’s son to do? This Australian comedy won the Foxtel Movies Audience Award for Best Feature at the 2017 Sydney Film Festival. 

Truth is stranger than fiction. Ali’s Wedding is based on the real-life experience of lead actor Osamah Sami, whose arranged marriage lasted less than two hours. The smart screenplay by Sami and Andrew Knight (Hacksaw Ridge, Rake, Jack Irish) tells a humorous, authentic and poignant tale about family life in multicultural Australia. Stylishly directed by Jeffrey Walker (Modern Family, Angry Boys), the film boasts a terrific cast including Don Hany as Ali’s father and delightful newcomer Helana Sawires as Dianne, the Lebanese-Australian medical student who sends Ali’s heartbeat racing. The time is right for a feel-good winner like Ali’s Wedding.  

Tickets are available from the Travelling Film Festival website until Thursday 14 September at 5pm. After this time, all tickets must be purchased in person at the venue.
