Red car­pet pre­miere for Jov­cic

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

AF­TER 10 years of ap­pear­ing in short films, award-win­ning Perth ac­tor Jack Jov­cic has scored his first lead role in a fea­ture film.

He plays Jo­van, an east­ern Euro­pean gang­ster turned ortho­dox priest in WA-made Hid­den Light, about three men whose lives con­verge af­ter a tragic event.

The film will have a red car­pet pre­miere at Luna Leed­erville on Oc­to­ber 15. Jov­cic said he and writer/di­rec­tor Aaron Kamp, from Ashby, had been col­lab­o­rat­ing on the film since 2013.

“It is a wholly WA-made film with a Euro­pean and Amer­i­can flavour,” he said.

“I had some nerves be­cause it was

my first lead role but I have worked with Aaron be­fore so on the set there was a sense of ease.”

Kamp said just weeks af­ter the film premieres, he will take it to the US in Novem­ber to find distri­bu­tion in the over­seas mar­ket.
