The London Australian Film Festival notches up its 17th year in 2011 - and has moved from the festival-heavy month of March to a new slot from May 5 to 12. It prides itself on showcasing every major release from Down Under. Highlights from the festival will tour nationally in April, May and June.
The opening gala this year is Red Dog, which will be introduced by actor Noah Taylor.
