A non-profit incorporated association, Starry Night Cinema, has recently stating screening films in the Northern Rivers.
Starry Night Cinema Northern Rivers is the outdoor cinema arm of End Credits Film Club, which has actively supported the screening of short films, indigenous, foreign and Australian art house films in Cairns since 1998.
Starry Night will screen their second outdoor cinema event at The Channon this weekend showing The Princess Bride on Saturday evening.
The Outdoor Cinema is just the beginning, this trial from Starry Night Cinema is hoping for community support help bring non-mainstream film to the screen in the Northern rivers.
‘With our Outdoor Cinema, we hope to create more than just a movie,’ says organiser Chedwa Whyte. ‘The event aims to engage local film-makers, performers and artists to showcase their talents by having local shorts and performances before the films and bringing back ‘intermission’ as a key part of the programming.
‘Please contact us if you have a show, short film, performance or artwork that you want to exhibit to the wider film going community. In the future we plan to incorporate fundraising into our events, in collaboration with other community organisations.’
The event will be held at Coronation Park the night before the next Channon Market, gates open at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.
