The Canberra outdoor film festival

By johnboy 3 March 2007 27

Canberra is having an outdoor film festival to coincide with the ten days of Canberra!

The ever so slightly tacky Stardomz website has the schedule. Interestingly The Stardomz guys have gone with the more traditional 12 days of festivities. (Didn’t the French try and bring in decimal calendars after the revolution?)

“Celebrate Canberra’s ‘Birthday’ with a 12 night ‘Festival of Films & Events’ &enjoy a truly spectacular ‘open-air’ cinema experience, & ‘a great night out under the stars’ whilst relaxing on the pristine lawns of Canberra’s favorite venue – Manuka Oval.”

Aside from the ‘fascinating’ use of quotes since when was Manuka Oval our favourite venue?

The schedule appears to be:

— 8 March – An Inconvenient Truth
— 9 March – The Wizard of Oz
— 10 March – Casino Royale – Late show – starts @ 10:03pm. & after ‘SkyFire’ finishes
— 11 March – MovieOke 1 – Double bill of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and The Beatles “Yellow Submarine”
— 12 March – Stardomz Selectâ„¢ (some sort of consumer election for the movie to be shown)
— 13 March – CACTUS Night – Double bill of Bazza McKenzie’s Adventures & Alvin Purple
— 14 March – XTACff (Xtreme Terrain Adrenaline Clips Film Festival)
— 15 March – ‘Paris, Je T’aime’
— 16 March – Happy Feet
— 17 March – Stardanz 1 (Less about movies more about dancing as far as I can tell)
— 18 March – MovieOke II – ‘Glastonbury’ (Some documentary celebrating the worlds most overblown rock festival)
— 19 March – WORGLOPOLMOV – World Global Political Movies’ “is an ‘A-List’ – Invite Only Politically Desensitised, fully catered, uniquely ‘Canberran’ event. The ‘WGPM2007’ – selection for this Movie of the Year, is the cold-war classic ‘Dr. Strangelove or – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb’. R U an A-Lister? Take the Test HERE.” (*SHUDDER*)

Gates open at 7 for an 8ish start except on Skyfire night.

Captain Stardomz again – just to clarify the screening of Al Gore’s Oscar winning doco. on the how we are all stuffing the planet – is screening as a FREE event, but if you want to come, we need to know, as we need to beam in the ice creams etc. Just register and your welcome, so far we reckon we have about 300 Canberra people that ‘care’ and are coming and there is plenty of room, and we want as many people to see this as possible.

To ‘I filed’ – and ‘Nemo’ – thanks for info – the web page that was up over the weekend – did refer to the opening night being presented by ACTEWAGL – this was incorrect and was a mistake and this text was not meant to appear here – and I am just dumbfounded how we missed it – we had a coding problem ? what do I know I’m just the captain and steer the bloody ship and make sure we don’t bump into any planets or stars or other space ships – its the black holes that are the big worry, you never know where they go!

Repeat we are not sponsored at this point by ACTEWAGL – although that would be welcomed – we had a coding problem that was not meant to show this text – it has been replaced as off this morning – thanks for pointing it out – the problem has been amended – looks like my ship is still experiencing some landing and vectoring problems as we steer at light speed toward the ACT – at this point ACTEWAGL are not involved in the Canberra Outdoor Film Festival – nor is any other government agency and I’m not the Minister

Regarding pricing – we have special events on – more than just a movie. For instance our Movieoke nights – where you can come along and have a singalong or just do nothing – we’re running Glastonbury – a premiere in Canberra – English Rock doco, at 10 bucks to get in and different prices for some of these nights – especially for WorGloPoloMov – but you have to pass the ‘A list test’ to get an invite into this one – its 45 bucks fully catered all food and bev’s. Most nights the on-line entry is 10 bucks / at the gate 14 bucks for big people – we’d like people to book on-line- it saves us and you money and we then know how many ice-creams and beers we need to beam in from our home planet.

Captain Stardomz away – landing in 4 nights

Looking forward to meeting all you nice people – sorry for the muck up and for misleading you – it was a mistake

…and if you subscribed to the concatenate, a couple of hours earlier than that…

johnboy 10:24 pm 04 Mar 07

If you read The Concatenate you’d have had that story days ago.

Nemo 10:14 pm 04 Mar 07

Captain, I apologise. Your website indicates the movie is sponsored by actewAGL, which is partly owned by the ACT Govt – It must be incorrect.

I read an article on Al Gore today which I found interesting. Is he really practising what he is preaching???,21985,21309812-5006029,00.html

I-filed 10:04 pm 04 Mar 07

I don’t get it. The site says $45, then $10. Then it’s mentioned here that it’s free. sorry, Captain, please spend less energy on clever-weird allusions and post some information!

Captain Stardomz, is that Jon Stanhope’s nom de plume?.

Jon, listen carefully now, take your PILLS!
