Spiders, pigs, lamb, caves and Gucci – we’ve got it all this week at the ANU Film Group as we head into the month of March!
Please remember to continue to bring your masks when attending screenings as they remain mandatory while in indoor spaces on the ANU campus, despite the easing of the wider ACT’s mask requirements last week. More information can be found HERE

SUPPORT ANUFG AT THE SOUTHERN CROSS CLUB
With restrictions easing and people dining out again, we encourage you to pay a visit to your local restaurants and clubs that have been hard hit by the pandemic over the past two years. The Canberra Southern Cross Club (CSCC), in particular, is worth a trip thanks to their Community Rewards program, which gives back to a wide variety of community groups – including everyone's favourite film society.
This means that if CSCC members choose to nominate the ANU Film Group as their community group of choice, the CSCC will donate to us 7.5% of what that member spends on food and drink at any of their venues. So you get to have a good meal and support, not just one, but two local organisations too!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 CSCC and its Community Rewards program at www.cscc.com.au/rewards
