On behalf of everyone at the ANU Film Group, we would like to thank all of our members for their incredible show of support over the past 12 months. We know it hasn’t been easy – and the fact that we were shut down for over eight months surely didn’t help – but we’re very grateful for everyone that has stuck with us this entire time, as well as those that came back over the past few weeks to welcome us back.
As a bit of a Christmas treat, we’re excited to announce new batch of screenings coming up soon in the new year that will be presented as part of the second annual Kambri Film Festival. The festival will run this year from January 21 to February 7, with screenings every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, featuring a mix of family-friendly screenings at 3 PM and evening sessions for adults at 7 PM.
Best of all, entry into these screenings is absolutely FREE and open to anyone and everyone, so here’s your chance to bring family, friends and guests along. Registration is still essential, but memberships are not required, which means that sessions could potentially book out – so be sure to register to secure your seats sooner rather than later!
The entire line-up for the festival – along with registration links – can be found now at https://kambri.com.au/event/kambri-film-fest-2021/ so make sure you check out all that’s on offer. The specific screenings that are being presented by the ANU Film Group are listed below for your convenience:
