Thanks to Hoyts Distribution, we have tickets to see THE IMPOSSIBLE, the powerful new drama starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.

Based on a true story, THE IMPOSSIBLE is the astonishing account of a family torn apart by the mayhem of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. As they embark on a journey to reunite with one another, the family experience remarkable compassion, courage and kindness during the darkest hours of their lives.

THE IMPOSSIBLE is in cinemas today (January 24). Check out the film’s trailer HERE.

To be in the running for one of five in-season double passes, simply email us at with your name and mailing address, along with the answer to the following question: ‘On what date is THE IMPOSSIBLE screening at the ANU Film Group?’

Entries close on Monday 28 January at 5 PM, with winners to be drawn from all correct entries received and prizes to be sent out by mail.

Happy New Year + New Website!

Everyone at the ANU Film Group would like to extend their sincere thanks to all of our valued members for their support throughout the past year. It's been a big year with a lot going on: from competitions galore to our biggest Trivia Night ever, a number of Canberra premieres, the Diversity Week Film Festival and, to top it all off, a pretty fantastic year in film too.

That said, 2013 is shaping up to be even bigger and better and we're kicking things off by launching a brand new ANUFG website today!

With online joining, programme listings, a handy FAQ, and a new, simplified design, we hope you'll find the new revamped site easy to use and navigate. Be sure to head over to to check it out as we begin to reveal our exciting new Semester One 2013 programme in the lead up to the start of screenings on February 11.

Along with the new site, we've also moved our newsletter host over to a new server.
