A starry night at the cinema for Gayndah

WATCH films under the starry North Burnett sky this March for an exclusive night at the cinema.

The Starry Night Cinema Film Festival is coming to the Gayndah Art Gallery on Saturday, March 14, at 6.30pm.

Hosted by the Queensland Touring Film Festival, this will be the first time it has been held in the North Burnett.

Arts facilitator Rachel Koster said Gayndah was offered the festival following its green screen workshops held across the region in 2019.

“It will be a great family night with something for everyone, going by the last outdoor night event we held on the gallery lawn,” Ms Koster said.

“The films are made for children and tertiary students, all being rated PG for everyone to enjoy.”

The night will include 12 short films and projects from the exciting green screen workshops, which include a music video for one of Ms Koster’s songs.

“It was a song of mine called A Little More Light, with students from Coalstoun Lakes, Dallarnil and Binjour creating a film clip.

“They also created hand-drawn backdrops that they performed in front of as well.”

The event will coincide with the art gallery’s Art Attack, an innovative new project created by the community organisation.

Bring your picnic rug or camping chair and watch the films on the front lawn of the Gayndah Arts and Cultural Centre.

Food and drinks will be available, with community groups providing food stalls on the night.

A bar will be operating on the balcony in the evening.

“A big thank you to the Golden Orange for sponsoring our big screen and making the evening possible, and to our volunteers.”
