Revolver Cult Film Festival – Meredith Music Festival 1991-2005

The Revolver cult film festival runs for eight weeks from Tuesday 27th July, featuring classic music documentaries. Each night will feature a live performance by singer songwriter Ben Abraham. Ben Abraham’s soulful voice is two parts the husky Indonesian of his father and one part the pure soprano of his Australian Mother, paired with his cheerfully uplifting tunes and catchy – oftentimes humorous – lyrics, make Ben Abraham a unique and exciting new talent in the Australian music scene.

From 1991 to 2005, the annual Meredith Music Festival has grown from a small party in rural Victoria into one of the most unique and beloved music festivals in the world.

“A Weekend In The Country” tells the amazing story of the Meredith Music Festival, a music festival like no other.

Narrated by the festival organisers and Jack and Mary Nolan (the farming couple who own the land) the documentary uses archival footage drawn from home videos, film crews, personal photos, TV footage, and super 8 diaries to show how the festival took on a life of its own and grew over the past 15 years. At the heart of the documentary is the story of festival co-founder Chris Nolan, who suffered a tragic illness and a life change in the late Nineties.

Chris’ spirit, the punters, electrical storms, great music, legends past and present, Tai Chi, and the World Famous Meredith Gift all come together to tell this unique story.
