Building bridges based on the belief that film becomes art only when its materials are as inexpensive as pencil & paper. Cine Pobre Film Festival is the 100% cartel-free intersection of culture and capabilities.
As a documentary filmmaker, Prewett has found himself in more than his share of strange situations. From his one-on-one time with Tom Cruise in Mozart's basement, to a passionate stage kiss with Carrie Fisher, to having Michael Parkinson bent double with laughter after being called a misogynist old bastard - there are few arenas outside his comfort zone.
One of these is Melbourne's Hisense Arena, where in 2013 Prewett entered into a verbal altercation with a crowd of 10,000 for the climactic scene in A Venue for the End of the World. It was around this time that it was suggested by Dick Cavett that he might 'use his head for better things'.
