About this Event

RSVP for Ali’s Wedding!

About the film:

Ali dreams big - he wants to be with the girl he loves, but he's been promised to another girl at his father's mosque. He wants to be the great doctor that the community expects him to be, but he doesn't get the marks. And above all he wants to make his father proud. Really proud.

ALI'S WEDDING is an affectionate and entertaining story about family, duty and love in multi-cultural Australia. Depicting the lives of a Muslim family in Melbourne with authenticity and warmth, Ali's family share the same dilemmas as every family. Parents who want the best for their children and children who are trying to work out their place in the world.

Winner of Best Original Screenplay and nominated for 7 awards from the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts, including Best Direction and Best Film. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Sydney Film Festival.
