We remain committed to the annual Film Festival and we are confident it will be back and better than ever in 2018.

Tickets are $15 – keep an eye on the Facebook page for information on the program.

And don’t forget, you can buy your tickets for the event on from Monday 26 June at 9am. Be quick – there are lots of eager local film fans who need a 2017 fix
