Short film fes­ti­val for fam­i­lies

Central and North Burnett Times - - ENTERTAINM­ENT - SAM TURNER

WATCH films un­der the starry North Bur­nett sky this March for an ex­clu­sive night at the cin­ema.

The Starry Night Cin­ema Film Fes­ti­val is com­ing to the Gayn­dah Art Gallery on Satur­day, March 14, at 6.30pm.

Hosted by the Queens­land Touring Film Fes­ti­val, this will be the first time it’s been held in the North Bur­nett.

Arts fa­cil­i­ta­tor Rachel Koster said Gayn­dah was of­fered the fes­ti­val fol­low­ing its green screen work­shops held across the re­gion in 2019.

“It will be a great fam­ily night with some­thing for ev­ery­one, go­ing by the last out­door night event we held on the gallery lawn,” Ms Koster said.

“The films are made for chil­dren and ter­tiary stu­dents, all be­ing rated PG for ev­ery­one to en­joy.”

The night will in­clude 12 short films and projects from the ex­cit­ing green screen work­shops, which in­clude a mu­sic video for one of Ms Koster’s songs.

“It was a song of mine called A Lit­tle More Light, with stu­dents from Coal­stoun Lakes, Dal­larnil and Bin­jour cre­at­ing a film clip.

“They also cre­ated hand­drawn back­drops that they per­formed in front of as well.”

The event will co­in­cide with the art gallery’s Art At­tack, an in­no­va­tive new project cre­ated by the com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Bring your pic­nic rug or camp­ing chair and watch the films on the front lawn of the Gayn­dah Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre.

Food and drinks will be avail­able, with com­mu­nity groups pro­vid­ing food stalls on the night.

A bar will be op­er­at­ing on the bal­cony in the evening.

“A big thank you to the Golden Orange for spon­sor­ing our ‘big green’ and mak­ing the evening pos­si­ble, and to our vol­un­teers.”
