YOU can sing with The Sapphires, belly laugh at the The Dressmaker and cry along with Lion at the Waranga Winter Film Festival from June 29 to July 1.
The Rushworth community will again be holding the not-for-profit event at the Rushworth Shire Hall in an attempt to raise funds that will be put directly back into the town.
This year’s festival will be the fifth annual year and will feature the three aforementioned Australian films.
“The films will complement the atmosphere of the stately Rushworth Shire Hall and set the scene for the cabaret-themed interior make-over,” said Louise Costa from the organising committee.
“Guests will be treated to personal table service by our fancy waiting staff and entertained during the interval by some talented local musicians.
“Delicious soup, bread, home-baked cakes and hot drinks will be served, and our famous lolly-sellers will keep you topped up with jaffas and popcorn.”
Just $25 will get an adult into all three films while concession will cost $20. Passes can be bought at the door or from the Rushworth Community House prior to the event.
To book a table, call the Rushworth Community House on 5856 1295.
Screening times will be:
The Sapphires, Friday, June 29, 11am.
The Dressmaker and Fire in the Belly, Saturday, June 30, 5pm.
Lion, Sunday, July 1, 2pm.
