Focus on NAIDOC Week celebrations

The third annual Arakwal NAIDOC Week film event will showcase the newest and hottest short films from indigenous film makers.


In conjunction with Flickerfest and iQ Inc, the film festival will be held at the Byron Bay Community Centre next Wednesday night (July 7) at 7.30pm.


The festival will present ‘The New Black’ – a series of seven short films each around 10 minutes long and made by indigenous writers, directors and producers.


Snacks and drinks are available by gold coin donation and will be provided by the Sisters for Reconciliation.


Shane Rennie from iQ Inc said he hoped people would support the festival and in doing so support the local indigenous people.


All profits will go to the Arakwal Corporation.


More information and program details are available at www.iQ.org.au or phone 6685 9999.
