SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL AND CASULA POWERHOUSE PRESENT
FELIX AND THE HIDDEN TREASURE
This action-packed animated feature from Quebec follows a fantastic quest to find a missing father and priceless treasure.
French Canadian director Nicola Lemay makes his feature debut with this spirited action-adventure. Twelve-year-old Felix sets out to find his father by travelling from the shores of his Canadian village to the mysterious Darkshadow Island. Accompanying Felix is Tom, a retired sea captain, Squawk, a one-legged parrot, and Rover, a scene-stealing cat who thinks he’s a dog. It takes all their wit and courage to find Felix’s father and save the world from the island’s evil ruler Morgäa. The film is filled with plenty of surprises: magic, secret passageways, hidden treasure and more. Recommended for ages eight and above.
This film screening also includes the short film, Jarli. Jarli Jones, a young First Nations girl in outback Australia, dreams of flying to the stars and sets out on an adventure to do just that.
