The selection of films this year is wide and varied, with a sizeable selection of Australian titles - including ‘Mental as Everything’, a documentary delving into mental illness, while trying to dispel some of the myths surrounding it. Charlie sits down with the film's director and central figure, Damon Smith, to discuss.
