Adelaide Film Festival is proud to present the Adelaide premiere of Holding the Man. Join director Neil Armfield and producer Kylie Du Fresne in conversation with Adelaide Film Festival Director Amanda Duthie at this special preview screening.

Based on the much loved and hugely successful memoir and stage play of the same name, Holding the Man is the warm, funny and achingly sad story of the 15 year long love affair between Timothy Conigrave and the boy he fell in love with at high school, John Caleo. Tim was an aspiring actor. John, the captain of the school football team. Their relationship blossomed and endured in the face of everything life threw at it – pride, adversity, discrimination, temptation and loss - until the only problem that love couldn’t solve, tried to destroy them.
