Fresh out of post-production, Lucy Durack's screenwriting debut Lift has secured its world premiere at CinefestOZ 2018 in a special Web Series Showcase event!

A 7-part romantic comedy web series, Lift stars Lucy Durack, Duncan Ragg, Mark Coles Smith and Vivienne Garrett. Set entirely in an elevator, the series is an intimate look at the literal and metaphorical ups and downs of jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none Olivia and uptight Simon as they travel the floors of their corporate office building.

Lift is the brainchild of Lucy Durack, Jess Murray and Leon Murray of Platinum Lining, a brand new screenwriting collective, and is produced by Lauren Elliott of Mad Kids, directed by Zoe Pepper and Executive Produced by Chloe Rickard of Jungle Entertainment. The series received Elevate funding from Screenwest and was filmed in Perth by an all-WA crew.

The evening will also showcase five fabulous Western Australian web series:

Calling - Directed by Miley Tunnecliffe

The Big Spaghetti - Directed by Zoe Pepper

Small Town Hackers - Directed by Henry Inglis

Aussie Rangers - Directed by Kelli Cross

600 Bottles of Wine - Directed by Ainslie Clouston

The event will feature an exclusive Q&A with Lucy, Zoe, Lauren and more, and is taking place on 24 August at the River Hotel, Margaret River. Tickets are available here.
