About LORNE FILM
LORNE FILM first came into being with the mounting of LORNE FILM 2013 – a film festival that went on to develop a reputation for quality, innovation and support for independent Australian film. During this run from 2013 to 2019 LORNE FILM has screened over 200 films – both features and shorts – and run a host of film events.
About ‘Magpie’ movie
A brand new Australian supernatural thriller/ romance is set to be shot in Victoria in early 2022. MAGPIE tells the story of grieving writer Jack, who moves house and tries online dating in an effort to move on after his wife’s death. Through an unnerving connection online Jack discovers the dark secrets of the house.
The film is moving and at times terrifying. Ultimately true love survives.
Screenwriter Darren Markey (THE UNLIT), tasted Bright Night gin at its launch in 2021. Darren loved the gin, and thought it perfect for a heart warming scene in MAGPIE, in which Jack enjoys a virtual drink with his lonely mother. Darren felt that even the name of the gin made it the perfect match for MAGPIE, evoking lightness and darkness with the Bright triumphing.
Darren approached the innovative and creative team at Bright Night, who instantly saw the value in the synergy between the film and the drink. Thus Bright Night’s partnership with Lorne Film, the film entity behind MAGPIE, was formed.
Bright Night Gin is the newest offering from multi-award winning distiller, Damian Mackey. It is made with pure Tasmanian mountain water and owes it’s lush complex flavours to fourteen local and imported botanicals.
