Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Film -

LO­CAL Kew­dale-based ac­tor Tanya Jade will fea­ture in a film called The Meet Cut, which was se­lected for the Rev­e­la­tions Film Fes­ti­val.

The Meet Cut will air as part of the Aus­tralian Rev­e­la­tions Screen­ing this month.

Jade said she also felt priv­i­leged to have it pre­cede Candy, which was one of Heath Ledger’s mem­o­rable roles in Aus­tralian film.

The Meet Cut is a short ro­man­tic com­edy, writ­ten and di­rected by James Pon­tifex, about a man play­ing with the idea of man­u­fac­tured serendip­ity to get the at­ten­tion of his dream girl Danielle, played by Tanya.

The short film had its screen­ing de­but last year at the highly re­garded St Kilda Film Fes­ti­val in Mel­bourne, where Jade walked the red car­pet and had pos­i­tive feed­back about the film.

“It was such a great ex­pe­ri­ence and some­what nerve wrack­ing be­cause it was the first time I’d seen a film of mine on the big screen,” Jade said.

“The more I study film and other ac­tors, the more re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion I de­velop for Heath Ledger as an ac­tor.”

Heath’s fa­ther Kim Ledger will present the film at the screen­ing on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 23. The screen­ing will be held at Backlot Stu­dios in West Perth at 6.30pm.

Ac­tor Tanya Jade stars in TheMeetCut.
