What makes an Australian film a ‘classic’? There are certain pictures from the Australian film canon that encapsulate Australian life, and for many, define their perception of Australian culture. Films like 'The Castle' and 'Muriel’s Wedding' are etched into the Australian psyche. Iconic catchphrases, quirky characters and quintessential Aussie dry wit. Director Aris Vela's vision is to recapture that same explainable sense of magic.

Created by an incredible team of young filmmakers, featuring an eclectic cast, a myriad of colourful on-set locations, a banging pub-rock soundtrack and a story for the ages; 'A Bitter Christmas' promises to quench your thirst for an Aussie-Christmas themed heist film.

Once completed, the film is set to be entered into an array of acclaimed film festivals.

Synopsis:
Set in the backdrop of Melbourne approaching the Christmas of 1983 as the brewery workers go on strike, threatening to cause a festive season without beer. 'A Bitter Christmas' tells the story of Ursula, an awkward and charming young brewery worker who just wants nothing more than to be accepted by the blokes she works with. Her determination gets her caught up in an elaborate heist. When the shady pub owner, Big Sid asks her boss, Bernie a real nasty guy and her coworker, Chris a loveable idiot to steal his supply of kegs Ursula weasels her way in to win their respect and get her share of the generous reward. As their plans unfold and quickly unravel Ursula discovers that she should never have trusted Bernie and Big Sid. After they narrowly escape a violent capture because of Bernie’s trickery and don’t have any money to show for their efforts Ursula, with the help of Chris take matters into their own hands. On Christmas eve, with the help of a small friend they break into Big Sid's pub drink his supply dry and steal the money they are owed.
