FODAR OPENING NIGHT : STRICTLY BALLROOM

Before Australia, The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge there was Strictly Ballroom.

 DANCE on FILM NIGHT presents Baz Luhrmann’s first feature film

  • Winner – Cannes Film Festival (1992)
  • Winner – TIFF (1992)
  • Winner – BAFTA (1993)
  • Winner – Edinburgh International Film Festival (2008)
  • Winner – Almost Everywhere!

When a young ballroom champion defies an all-powerful dance Federation by performing his own steps, his dream of winning the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix is shattered. But help comes from an unexpected quarter.

“Baz Luhrmann’s most charming, entertaining film; the opening chapter in a career that exploded like a dynamite-rigged disco.” The Guardian

The story of how “Strictly Ballroom” was made is as entertaining as the film. Strictly Ballroom from Stage to Screen:
