Thank You + Win Tickets to Dendy's Gala Screening of ENDER'S GAME!

25th November, 2013

On behalf of everyone here at the ANU Film Group, we’d like to thank all of our members and their guests for your continued support during 2013. Two full house screenings, a fantastic increase in membership sales and yet another best-attended fundraising Trivia Night are just the tip of the iceberg in what has been a challenging-but-exciting year for us.

Particular thanks must go to the many of you who responded to our member survey, offering your thoughts on the Film Group experience. We can’t thank you enough for your comments and will be working hard to ensure that we take as many of them into consideration as possible in our planning for 2014. We also plan on providing responses to some of the more frequent comments, so keep an eye out in the near future for that.

We’re already hard at work preparing for Semester One 2014 too, so be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks on our new programme, how to pre-purchase your memberships and perhaps even some giveaways from time to time via our mailing list and our Facebook page (

Enjoy the screening break (as much as you can without the Film Group), have a great holiday period and we’ll see you all in 2014!


After a hostile alien race attacks Earth and threatens to return, the military begins recruiting and training young children to prepare the next generation for battle. Ender Wiggin (HUGO’s Asa Butterfield) is a brilliant but outcast boy, who is pulled out of his school to join an elite training squad, under the supervision of the esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford). Seen as the military’s next great hope, Ender quickly rises through the ranks in a race against time that will determine the future of the human race.

Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card, ENDER’S GAME is an epic sci-fi adventure that also stars Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin.

Thanks to our friends at Dendy Canberra, we have ten double passes to give away to their exclusive red carpet gala screening on Wednesday 4 December. The event kicks off at 6:00 PM with pre-screening drinks and canapés, with the film itself beginning at 6:30 PM.

To go into the running to win a double pass, all you have to do is email us at with your name, membership number (located underneath the barcode on your card) and the answer to the following question: ‘Harrison Ford is no stranger to science fiction. Name ONE other sci-fi film that he has starred in.’

Entries close on Sunday 1 December at 5 PM. Only winners will be contacted via email, with names to be put on a door list for the event.
