Follow My Way
A SHORT FILM - WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY HENRY BOFFIN
CIFS was honoured to present a special advance screening of this short film by the award winning Australian filmmaker Henry Boffin. This special screening, attended by 50 members and friends, was held at Dendy Cinemas Newtown at 6.30pm on Monday evening 23rd July 2018.
Henry Boffin attended with Janelle Bailey the lead actor to front a Q&A session after the movie. We engaged in discussion of movie making and what brings people to join a cult and how they can eventually realise the truth and leave.
