Inclement weather has so far delayed plans for the sunset cinema screening by the Byron Bay International Film Festival, but fear not!
Under a full moon this Tuesday March 26, the free outdoor event will be held next to the Byron Bay Surf Club located on Main Beach.
Entertainment starts from 6pm for a film start time of 7.15pm.
Festival director J’aimee Skippon-Volke says the family friendly film Inuk received a remarkable 22 international awards and is sure to touch a few hearts.
It’s a heartwarming story with an all Inuit cast, about a young man’s journey to reconnect with his cultural roots.
‘Surrounded by the beach and the full moon, the setting will be nothing short of magical,’ she said. Ms Skippon-Volke says that BBFF2013’s Sunset Cinema is supporting the Byron Bay Community Association’s “Build A Better Byron Bay” campaign and will be fundraising for the initiative on the night.
The Byron Bay Community Association (BBCA) is the not for profit community development organisation that for over 30 years has provided social programs such as the Byron Youth Service (BYS), homelessness and emergency relief services, and the Byron markets.
It also rebuilt the Byron Community Centre and Byron Theatre. In the event that the festival needs to reschedule again because of poor weather, it will screen on Wednesday March 27 instead. See www.bbff.com.au for more.
