Thank You for Supporting Us + What’s On This Week

6th September, 2018

We’re thrilled to report that we had 246 people in attendance at our Annual Trivia Night last Friday, making it our best-attended trivia night since we started running them in 2006. It certainly wouldn’t have been anywhere near as fun without the keen participation and generosity of all involved, so a big THANK YOU to all who came along and supported the ANU Film Group!

Just in case you weren’t able to make it along or wish to support our little not-for-profit group in a different way, we’d like to remind you that we have once again been selected by the Canberra Southern Cross Club (CSCC) for their Community Rewards program in 2018/19.

This means that if CSCC members choose to nominate the ANUFG as their community group of choice, the CSCC donates 10% of what that member spends on food and drink at any of their venues – including their recently renovated Woden Central destination – to us. So you get to enjoy delicious food, and we get a contribution each time you spend on food you were probably going to get anyway!

If you’re already a CSCC member, nominating us is easy – all you have to do is fill out a short online form by CLICKING HERE.

Alternatively, you can email us at with your full name and CSCC membership number, or speak to reception at any CSCC venue. And if you’re not a member, you can find out more about the great benefits that a CSCC membership offers and more about its Community Rewards program at

Thanks again for your ongoing support!


Accept your mission and check out the biggest and best-reviewed MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE film yet this week at the ANU Film Group! Plus, an acclaimed Oscar-nominated Hungarian film, and a double feature of unusual father-son relationships.

• THU 6 SEP @ 7:30 PM: ON BODY AND SOUL (R, 116 min)

A man and a woman meet for the first time at their workplace and discover that they have been having the same surreal dreams each night, so they set about making them come true in this Hungarian Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.

** Presented in partnership with the Embassy of Hungary **


Ethan Hunt and his IMF team find themselves in a race against time after a mission goes wrong and the US government begins to question his loyalty in the acclaimed latest entry in the Mission: Impossible series. Starring Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg.

• SAT 8 SEP @ **7 PM**: IDEAL HOME (M, 91 min) + MENASHE (PG, 82 min)

In IDEAL HOME, an extravagant gay couple (Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd) find their marital troubles made even worse when a previously-unknown grandson unexpectedly shows up at their doorstep and the couple reluctantly decide to take him in.

Then, in MENASHE (at approx. 8:30 PM), a father struggles to keep custody of his only son after his wife passes away, and the traditional values of New York’s secretive and ultra-Orthodox Jewish Hasidic community prohibit him from raising his son alone.
