Event Details

The little film festival with a big heart makes the 'filmgrimage' south again to showcase some of our favourite and award winning films from HOGISFF2015. Join us for a drink, and get a taste for the heart-warming and uplifting film fare on offer from Gympie's famous film festival.

We are excited to announce the SA edition to the film line-up as Closer Productions ‘I Want to Dance Better at Parties’ directed by Matthew Bate and Gideon Obarzanek. Obarznek’s work as a choreographer and playwright informs the film. “Parts of the stage play were then incorporated into the screenplay making it both a documentary and a drama where the subject appears as himself observing his own character played by an actor… Sounds weird, but it works.”


Free drink for ticket holders on arrival.
$12 Advance tickets online.
