Mijo Biscan and Jona Byron Concert

Mijo Biscan is co-founder and a song writer for Melbourne s Alt-Rock-Prog-Folk group called Lamplight. Their success in their homeland of Australia has propelled Mijo to Europe to continue spreading his music to fans on the other side of the planet.

Although references are made to Jeff Buckley, Rufas   Wainwright, Nick Cave, Fleet Foxes and Leonard Cohen among others, Mijo     continues to elude the pigeon-holes of critics with his fiercely unique voice in the world of song writing and also with his own personal expression and musical inventiveness. Previously performing and commanding a band of up to 18 people including horn sections, strings and choirs, Mijo is now returning to his roots as a troubadour of simple song and simple truths told with his unique voice and way.

Mijo will be joined by Sydney singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Jona Byron, who is not easy to pigeonhole.

Jona's music and songwriting has been revered by artists such as Conway Savage (The Bad Seeds) and Glenn Richards (Augie March) and he has toured and played with acts such as Machine Translations, Sime Nugent and Jason Mraz. Jona is currently touring throughout Europe and is currently based in the UK.

Concert will be followed by «  Best of   », a selection of short films from the Sexy International Film Festival Australia.

Australian Retrospective @Cinema Le Grand Action

Saturday 26 June, 3pm

The Sexy International Paris Film Festival is a celebration of cinema showcasing a diverse programme of films exploring the theme Sexy love, sensuality, sexuality, eroticism, love and relationships without the x. Often touching, profound, humorous, absurd and sometimes controversial the films offer a window to different perceptions of sexy, through another world, another culture.

Featuring a kaleidoscopic array of award-winning short films centred around the theme sexy: voyeuristic encounters at a peepshow, the physical manifestations of sex addiction, the fragility of marriage, guilt and jealousy and the touching story of bringing a girl home for the first time.

Films included in the programme include Tropfest winner Luke Eve s short film Mans Best Frien starring Pia Miranda, Dustin Fenneley's Eskimo Kiss (who's previous short Snow screened at Cannes) and films from the archives of AFTRS (Australian Film Television and Radio School).
