A teen comedy written by and starring an Australian teen cast screening BCC Cinemas for a very limited season!

Join in on a wild ride through the last days of high school with our anti-hero Hal alongside his slacker/jock mates. Amongst the hilarious universal teenage stupidity and chaos of the penultimate end of school house party it becomes glaringly obvious Hal needs to stop cruising through life to face his fears and follow his heart.

Set in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, where ridiculous wealth nestles alongside struggling single-parent families, Bilched is the astonishing writing, producing and acting debut feature film by 19-year-old Hal Cumpston.

Bilched was conceived and written by Hal Cumpston when he was aged 18, having just finished his HSC.

“I wrote Bilched after complaining to my Dad about the lack of quality Australian teen films around. There was this golden era in the 80s and after that, the seminal coming of age films - the really great ones like ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Superbad’ – have only come from the US. Aussie teens are pretty funny, and I wanted to capture that. I wrote the film because I wanted to create a story that was representative of my age group and my culture at this particular moment in time”, said Hal.

Ahead of its Australian release Bilched competed in the highly respected Chelsea Film Festival in NYC. It scooped the pool, spectacularly winning three awards: Best Screenplay (Hal Cumpston), Best Supporting Actor Fred Banks Du Rietz) and the Grand Prix Best Feature Film.

Shot in just 21 days, Bilched features stand-out performances by a majority of mostly untrained and unknown young Australian actors. Alan Dukes, Jeremy Hartley Sims, and Rhys Andrew Muldoon played the minor adult roles and have been exceptionally generous and helpful in the film’s production. The outstanding emerging acting talent featured in Bilched includes Mitzi Ruhlmann, Fred Banks Du Rietz, Juliet Lochrin, Ewan Wall, Will Johnston, Nicholas Bakopoulos-Cooke, Jack Walton, Reilly Hatwell, Holly White, Paloma Brito and Otis Pavlovic plus many more.
