Usually held on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, the 2021 festival has be rescheduled to 16-18 July.
Gippsland’s famous Briagolong Film Festival is back with a wonderful weekend of entertainment planned.
Seven hand-picked Australian films will be screened in July at the heritage listed Briagolong Mechanics’ Institute Hall, which is in good shape with a fresh coat of paint and a new deck.
The program opens on Friday night 16 July with Sam Neill, Michael Caton and Wayne Blair in the PG comedy-drama Rams. The night includes a complimentary supper.
There’s also Napoleon (family movie for the kids), Never Too Late, Hearts and Bones, Emu Runner and Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan. On Sunday morning there’ll be a free screening of Beyond the Burning, which highlights how a hotter climate has reduced rainfall and dried out the forests of East Gippsland, creating conditions for more frequent and severe bishfires. See below for details of each film (ignore the old dates).
Tickets are available at the door for $12/$10 concession, kids movie $5 and weekend passes are $35. Beyond the Burning and Emu Runner are free.
As always, the kiosk will be oopen and the wine stall this year also has beer.
The Briagolong Film Festival is supported by the Wellington Shire Council and Film Victoria.
NOTE: The schedule is as originally planned, but the dates are now 16-18 JULY
