Annual Trivia Night 31st August, 2018
If you're reading this and thinking “Not another trivia night!” then you clearly haven’t been to one the ANU Film Group’s trivia nights.
Now in its 12th year, this highly-anticipated annual event is a trivia extravaganza unlike anything you may have experienced at your local pub. All questions will be about movies – but we cover a wide range of movies, question types, and even difficulty levels (some require no movie knowledge whatsoever). And, being a night about movies, most questions involve fun audio-visual elements.
The event is our primary fundraiser for the year, with tons of exciting prizes to be won, courtesy of some very generous prize sponsors from restaurants, shops and businesses around town. A whole lot of effort (we start planning months in advance) is put into making it a special night for all who come along, so why not give it a try?
Where and When?
The ANUFG Trivia Night will be held at the Hellenic Club of Canberra, Matilda Street, Woden ACT 2606.
Questions kick off promptly at 7:30 PM with doors opening at 7:00 PM on Friday 31st August, 2018.
