The Screen Guide

Maxie, Summer and James are three mid-teen best friends whose friendship has been brought up short by the diagnosis James has brain cancer. We meet them at a raving music festival in the immediate aftermath of this deadly bombshell to find out this is the first of many festivals they plan to escape to – to deny or keep at bay the reality they must ultimately face. And here they meet Marley an aspiring and up-and-coming musician getting her first festival gig after years of slog busking and sending out YouTube videos. Marley, a few years older but from the same South Sydney beach culture, sees herself in these lost grommets and pulls them under her wing particularly bonding with Summer who is an aspiring young artist herself but lacking in confidence and positive females in her life. Ignorant of the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance – over the course of the 6 music festivals that frame the film, Maxie and Summer will learn to accept the loss of James and Marley’s own rise to the main stage will provide a positive anchor for them to move forward with their lives. Told only through the prism of the 6 music festivals that frame the film, 6 FESTIVALS will give audiences a window into the back stage, behind the scenes and full-on mosh pit mud field mayhem of every teenager’s rites of passage and coming of age.
