The ANU Film Group would like to wish all of our members and guests a wonderful Easter break for this coming weekend. Due to the public holidays, there will be no screenings on the weekend, but we’ll be back in full swing next week with some big films, including KONG: SKULL ISLAND, the Oscar-winning MANCHESTER BY THE SEA and our very special Q&A screening of JOE CINQUE’S CONSOLATION!
If you’d like to partake in a bit of fun, don’t forget that we’re hosting the weekly quiz night at the Phoenix Pub in Civic TONIGHT (Tuesday 11 April). It all kicks off at 6:30 PM with free drinks, bar tabs and other assorted prizes up for grabs. Hope to see you there!
Only one screening this week, so don’t miss out on getting your Film Group fix in before all of the chocolate this weekend...

WIN TICKETS TO ‘THEIR FINEST’ – IN CINEMAS APRIL 20
Thanks to Transmission Films, we’ve got tickets to give away to THEIR FINEST, the new British comedy starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy!
With London emptied of men now fighting in WWII, Catrin Cole (Arterton) lands herself a job writing scripts for propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by a movie producer, who recruits her to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. With bombs dropping all around them and the entire country’s morale at stake, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is on screen.
