THESE FINAL HOURS (2013)

Australia (MIFF 2013 , Australian Showcase,MIFF Premiere Fund)

What would you do on the last day on Earth?

With the end of the world only hours away, the self-absorbed James heads to the ultimate party-to-end-all-parties. On his way there, he saves the life of a young girl named Rose who is searching desperately for her missing father. This simple act sets James on a path to redemption.

Featuring a fresh, local take on the apocalypse subgenre with a cast that includes Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek), Sarah Snook (Not Suitable for Children), Daniel Henshall (Snowtown), Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) and Lynette Curran (The Boys), it was supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund and inspired by Hilditch's ACTAA award-winning short film Transmission.
