But is this really the world’s best film?

30-year-old Australian filmmaker Joshua Belinfante will screen his debut feature documentary ‘The World’s Best Film’ for the first time online at the Melbourne Film Festival (MDFF) between 30th June – 15th July 2020 & at The Revelation Perth International Film Festival: Couched between 9th July -19th July where he’s hoping the Australian public will think just that.



After becoming sick with a tumour between his lungs and heart at age 24 and being told he may not have a long time left to live, Joshua was told to stop, stay inside, and do nothing. Causing Joshua to reconsider what he would do if given a second chance at life and his dream to make ‘The World’s Best Film’ began.

‘The World’s Best Film’ is a documentary filmed over 5 years across 3 continents and 10 countries, featuring a cast of 13 memorable characters. The title is a play on the subject matter, with the film exploring the intricate journeys of the individuals, each who is ‘the world’s best’ at something; with some unique skills, talents and jobs thrown into the mix.

On his journeys with his trusty camera, Joshua found a variety of characters some weird, some very interesting, some musical, some with strange careers.

Belinfante takes us on a journey to Stockholm, Bangkok, London, Krakow, Transylvania and even Sydney’s Centennial Park where he explores the best in the world with his tongue firmly placed in his cheek,

You may not like all of his discoveries but many will take your fancy.

Sydney-based Belinfante overcame his bad health and qualified as a solicitor. But his eye is more comfortable behind a lens than pouring over documents.

His first film is well worth watching as we see how strange this world can be closeup.
