More than 11 months after our screenings were shut down on March 14 last year, the ANU Film Group is finally back this week with our first full programme for 2021!
It’s all kicking off tonight – and although we’re at risk of sounding like a broken record, please remember to register for any film you intend to come along to, as this is a mandatory condition of the ANU allowing us to resume screenings. We will have to turn you away at the door if you're not on the list – no exceptions!
• THU 18 FEB @ 7:30 PM: JOJO RABBIT (M, 108 mins)
During WWII, a German boy – whose imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler – has his world turned upside down when he discovers that his mother has been hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Oscar winner for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2020.
• FRI 19 FEB @ 7:30 PM: WONDER WOMAN 1984 (M, 151 mins)
Against the backdrop of the Cold War and an era of excess, Diana (Gal Gadot) must
deal with the ramifications of an ancient artefact that grants wishes when it falls into the hands of a greedy businessman, triggering worldwide chaos and instability.
• SAT 20 FEB @ **5 PM**: THE DRY (MA, 117 mins)
Federal agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns after an absence of 20 years to his drought-stricken Australian hometown to attend a tragic funeral. But his return opens up a decades-old wound: the unsolved death of a teenage girl.
REMINDER ABOUT COVID-19 SAFETY RULES
With screenings re-commencing this week, we take this timely opportunity to issue a reminder to all members and invited guests about our COVID-19 safety rules. These haven’t changed since our trial screenings over the summer, but if you need a refresher you can find them again here:
• The capacity of the Kambri cinema is capped at 65% or 195 people.
• All attendees must pre-register to attend screenings. No walk-ins will be permitted.
• Attendees are asked to check-in using the ACT Health Check In CBR app. If you are unable to use the app, a written check-in sheet will be
made available too.
• All attendees should maintain appropriate social distancing by leaving 1.5 metres (or 1-2 seats) between them and the nearest person/party inside the cinema, as well as when queuing up outside. Groups of attendees from the same household are permitted to sit together.
• Any attendees exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will be prohibiting from entering the venue.
• Attendees are strongly encouraged to wear face masks while attending screenings, and these will be made available free of charge on entry.
• Attendees are strongly encouraged to use hand sanitiser stations around the Cultural Centre building, as well as use provided disinfectant wipes to clean their seat area before/after use.
• All contact tracing information will only be retained for 28 days. This information will not be used for any other purpose, and will be destroyed after this time.
• Representatives of the ANU will be conducting audits to ensure compliance at any given time, and
breaches may result in screenings being immediately cancelled or our permission to hold future screenings revoked.
• Any members found to be in breach of the COVID-19 rules or who refuse to follow instructions from representatives of the ANUFG may be asked to leave and/or have their memberships suspended or revoked.
These are posted on our website at www.anufg.org.au/covid and will be updated there if/when any changes are required. A more detailed FAQ about the rules can also be found on our website by CLICKING HERE
