This in from New Acton and sounding very interesting:

Local Feats is a retrospective of local feature films made in Canberra between 1971 and 2010.

Starting 1971, screened from an old 16mm projector, we will travel through the years each fortnight with the director and one of his/her short films. After a talk and the screenings, the director will be there to talk about the film. Hosted in NewActon’s gorgeous little Kendall Lane Theatre with the Canberra Short Film Festival.

This is a great way to support local film makers and enjoy a Thursday evening with friends. $5 of each ticket goes to the maker of the night’s films.

See the posterfor a list of films, dates and a quick blurb.

A full list of the film series is on the poster below.

Remarkable to see The Demonstrator (1971) on the list. I wonder how it managed to survive. Classic Aussie film Wake In Fright, released a few months earlier, completely disappeared for over 30 years and when enough parts of it were found over the years it was digitally restored frame by frame and issued on DVD in 2008.
