Hamish Bennet will be in attendance at the World Premiere of his new film Bellbird at Sydney Film Festival on 11 June 6:30pm, with a second screening on 12 June 1:55pm.
This quietly powerful feature debut, told with warm humour, takes us into the heart of a small rural town in New Zealand, where a community comes together after a tragic death.
