MQFF’s Festival Director interviews Laura Scrivano on her short film THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE.

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE is about a boy named Charlie. Charlie’s a mess. His best friend’s not talking to him, he can’t concentrate on his work… and now the clock’s ticking on his French exam. But the courage to speak can come from the most unlikely places.

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE is screening as part of the OZ SHORTS series.
Sat 22 March - 6:00pm
