The second annual Kambri Film Fest is part of the HERE I AM: Art by Great Women Festival and no surprise it has been curated to celebrate and elevate the contributions of creative women in the film industry. With a magnificent lineup of films, enjoy 12 days of fun on offer from Thursday 21 January to Sun 7 February 2021 in the comfort of Kambri's own cinema at the Cultural Centre, Kambri at ANU, University Ave, Acton, where you can escape whatever elements summer may bring. Better still, this is a FREEpublic event with a complimentary popcorn and beverage (water, juice or Coke product) per person. For program details and to register for your free tickets via Eventbrite, see here or directly through Eventbrite via the links given on film schedule at end of article.
Igniting the imaginations of the young and the young-at-heart, and with a focus on females, settle in for a silver screen program to suit everyone. Be entertained by the retro or the recent, side with the strong-willed or the sentimental, and be captivated by true tales or tall stories. Escape to exhilarating accounts of the adventures we dream of and the characters we copy. Family-friendly films begin at 3pm, with most featuring female leads. Evening sessions are geared towards adults and kick off at 7pm.
Thursday nights will highlight Australian women in film including directors Catherine Dwyer (Brazen Hussies), Gillian Armstrong (Star Struck) and Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof). Friday and Sunday nights will offer female-directed films from the last two years including Golden Globe Award-winning dramedy The Farewell, while Saturday nights are reserved for blockbusters you may have missed in 2020 like the action-packed sci-fi time travel adventure Tenet starring Robert Pattinson. Why not make an occasion of it and meet up with family and friends for a pre-movie meal and drinks at one of Kambri's popular eateries, before heading into the Kambri Cinema. Parking is available at the ANU Kambri Union Court car park, with complimentary parking on the weekends for up to three hours.
Save the date in your diary for 12 days of fun with family and friends for FREE. The film schedule is as follows and as aforementioned, family features at 3pm, and 7pm features geared towards the adults.
