Australia is home to over 800 species of birds from honeyeaters to hawks, from spoonbills to cockatoos. It is also home to different species of bird lovers, some of whom take their interest to the extreme...'twitchers' is the commonly used name for such enthusiasts. Chasing Birds follows three teams - the Hunter Thickheads, the Hunter Home-Brewers and the Whacked-Out Woodswallows as they compete in an annual 'Twitchathon'. The aim is to spot as many species as possible in 24 hours. Not easy at the best of times - but especially difficult with a camera crew tagging along.

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film The Trip , took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon - or semi-fictionalised versions thereof - on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouth-watering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of Jagged Little Pill, and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centred on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. This film effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity.
