Open Roof 2019: Teen Spirit and The Heavyweights Brass Band
ORF favourites The Heavyweights Brass Band will kick off the evening with some New Orleans Jazz-inspired musical stylings. After that, there’s more for music fans to rejoice in with Max Minghella’s stylish directorial debut, Teen Spirit. The film is a modern Cinderella story about 17-year-old Violet (Elle Fanning) a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion for singing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Featuring a dance-able soundtrack with music by Ariana Grande, Robyn, Grimes, Tegan & Sara and more, Elle Fanning proves she has the singing chops while Minghella melds it all together with captivating music video style.
The Festival will be partnering with a range of different local food trucks throughout the summer, including Fidel Gastro’s, Buster's Sea Cove and Rancho Relaxo, which will be the perfect pairing for a refreshing beer from ORF’s long-standing partner, Amsterdam Brewery.
