For the first time, Federal Kids Film Club will run as part of Federal Films regular monthly film program at Federal hall.

Initially screening films for three- to eight-year-olds, but with plans to expand into a wider age range programming, the films will screen at 4pm, and be followed by a community dinner. For mums and dads wishing to stay on into the evening, the adult feature film will run at its usual winter screening time of 7.30pm.

The opening film, Japanese animation classic Kiki’s Delivery Service will screen on Saturday. A spellbinding animated feature for three- to eight-year-olds, the film is G rated. The adult evening feature following after the community dinner is As It Is In Heaven. This month sees all proceeds from the film and food sessions going to the Save the Heart of Federal Campaign, a valuable local initiative to buy the community church and keep it as a community asset.

Child ticket price is $5. Adults are free. All welcome. Families are asked to bring cushions to sit on. Further information is available at www.federalfilmsociety.com or by calling Rachel on 6684 9220.
