The Bangalow Film Festival is moving its screenings to the A&I Hall to keep you cosy and covered from April 10 till 14.

Organisers say ‘With the showgrounds soggy, the A&I Hall will be transformed into a pop-up cinema by night, and a fun kids’ wonderland by day’.

The same line-up of critically acclaimed films will be on offer, including premieres, internationally renowned releases, cult classics, thought provoking documentaries and more.
