A series of short films are set to see the curtains raise for the highly successful Love Bombs Film Festival. Earlier this year the three locally produced short films premiered to a sold out crowd of 1300 movie goers, over 8 days, at the Labia on Orange. And so with such high demand and much excitement, the three short films are back for two nights only on the 14th and 15th September 2012 for the Love Bombs Encore.
The Love Bombs are a project of Film Kru, a Film and Media team at Joshua Generation Church, although the team of over 300 volunteers are new to the world of film making, the films manage to deliver a big budget feel, with minimal finances and passion as their primary resource. Expect hard hitting, action packed and insightful stories, artfully captured on screen.
