Premiere Of ‘Tailgate’ Coming Soon To Dalby

Since a small team of filmmakers descended on the Darling Downs there have been whispers in the wind that their feature film – filmed largely in Dalby – will soon be making its way to Dalby’s Civic Theatre. Now, Brisbane production company Socrates Films can confirm that Queensland film ‘Tailgate’ will have an exclusive screening at the Civic Theatre on Saturday, 15th March.
Tailgate carFeaturing the talents of Dalby’s own Zan Gooderham (a three month old, bright eyed baby) and shot on location at Russell and Vonnie Dent’s Westgate Seeds, ‘Tailgate’ showcases Dalby’s unique and picturesque landscape. The Dalby countryside’s natural beauty and desolate sparseness caught director Jai Hogg’s eyes during a road trip. Westgate Seeds proved to be the perfect backdrop for the final act of the film.

“We needed to find a location that had the perfect mixture of open space and liveliness,” says Jai Hogg. “There is something majestic about the Dalby fields in the sense that these locations feel alive and yet barrren. Also, the sky is just beautiful. When you combine those elements with incredibly generous landowners, well then you’ve got the perfect location.”

Dalby will now have the honour of hosting the first public screening of ‘Tailgate’. In addition, Jai Hogg along with the key crew and some cast will be available for a question and answer session directly after the screening.

“To some extent, I feel like the community of Dalby owns a part of our film. It wouldn’t exist without them and it also wouldn’t be of the caliber it is without their support and enthusiasm. It feels like we’re showing the film to our Dalby family and I can’t wait for them to enjoy seeing the local vistas in our film”, says Jai.

‘Tailgate’ is an unnerving film about meticulous manipulation and murderous intent. It follows a young man who awakes trapped in the boot of a car. Neither the driver nor the trapped man seem to know why he is there, but the driver, whose bleak past will send shivers, is not taking any chances. His instructions are simple, “In three days, kill him.”

He’s got three days to find answers… but does he want them?

Tickets are very limited and will sell out. Dalby Civic Centre urges ticket-buyers to get in prior to the screening, by purchasing from the box office.
