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 Canberraâ€™s â€˜Birthdayâ€™ with a 12 night â€˜Festival of Films & Eventsâ€™ &enjoy a truly spectacular â€˜open-airâ€™ cinema experience, & â€˜a great night out under the starsâ€™ whilst relaxing on the pristine lawns of Canberraâ€™s favorite venue â€“ 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 â€˜SkyFireâ€™ finishes
— 11 March – MovieOke 1 – Double bill of Pink Floydâ€™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 McKenzieâ€™s Adventures & Alvin Purple
— 14 March – XTACff (Xtreme Terrain Adrenaline Clips Film Festival)
— 15 March – â€˜Paris, Je Tâ€™aimeâ€™
— 16 March – Happy Feet
— 17 March – Stardanz 1 (Less about movies more about dancing as far as I can tell)
— 18 March – MovieOke II â€“ â€˜Glastonburyâ€™ (Some documentary celebrating the worlds most overblown rock festival)
— 19 March – WORGLOPOLMOV – World Global Political Moviesâ€™ “is an â€˜A-Listâ€™ – Invite Only Politically Desensitised, fully catered, uniquely â€˜Canberranâ€™ event. The â€˜WGPM2007â€™ â€“ selection for this Movie of the Year, is the cold-war classic â€˜Dr. Strangelove or – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bombâ€™. R U an A-Lister? Take the Test HERE.” (*SHUDDER*)
Gates open at 7 for an 8ish start except on Skyfire night.
