There have been a number of changes to the ANU’s COVID-19 safety protocols, and we would like to advise you of the following as they pertain to ANU Film Group screenings:

• The permitted capacity of the Kambri Cinema for ANUFG screenings has now been increased to 75% or 225 people.
• This means that the previous rule to leave 1.5 metre or 1-2 seats between yourself and the next party inside the cinema is no longer mandatory, but is still recommended where possible. If social distancing is not possible, consider wearing a mask.
• All attendees must continue to check in using ACT Health’s Check In CBR app prior to entering the cinema. This is a legal requirement, and we can assist you with checking in on our device if you are unable to do so.
• Pre-registration is still required as per the ANU’s Functions on Campus protocols. The Eventbrite registration forms will continue to open two weeks prior to the screening date, but will now remain open up until the start of the screening itself.
• Face masks, anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitiser will continue to be available at no cost to attendees from the front desk.
• Anyone feeling unwell is advised to stay home, and anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted entry into the cinema.

As always, these restrictions may change at any time as ANU or ACT Health guidelines are revised, so please check our website at for the latest information. If you have any questions or require clarification on any of these rules, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
