Federal Films - October 311

Federal Film Society review by Pip Morrissey

October dinner and short films

Our annual fundraising dinner and short films evening is coming up again on Saturday 10 October. 

We’ll be showing a mix of extraordinary short films accompanied by an Asian inspired three course meal which has been planned for us by Belinda Jeffery. It will be a night of fine dining and great company with plenty of time to socialise between our selection of wonderful short films.

Don’t miss out on this very popular event which we hold only once a year to raise funds to enable us to keep showing monthly films. 

Tickets are $35 per person for FFS members and $40 for non-members, and it’s BYO drinks.

September film night

On 12 September we’ll be screening Tokyo Story (1953), a black and white Japanese film directed by Yasujiro Ozu. It’s an unsentimental insight into the human condition, expressed through Ozu’s distinctive style, which gives a very photographic feel to his films.

Ozu has been called ‘the most Japanese of all directors’ and this is particularly evident in this film where he creates visual stepping stones providing contemplative interludes.

Mullum Music Fest 2015


If you love live music in intimate settings, you will love the Mullum Music Festival (Nov 19-22). Over the last eight years, the Mullum Music Festival has quietly (yet colourfully) cemented its reputation as one of the best little festivals around, offering something for all tastes and ages. Set against the tranquil and iconic backdrop of Mullumbimby in Northern NSW the Mullum Music Festival is testimony to the old adage ‘bigger isn’t always better’.

Featuring live acts and performances from all over Australia this year Mullum Music Festival announces its most international and diverse line up yet, bringing artists from across the globe and musical spectrum to create its signa- ture 4-day joyous gumbo of musical delights in the halls, pubs, churches and streets of the coastal town of Mullumbimby.

Mullum Music Festival remains a sanctuary for musicians and music-lovers that want the smorgasbord a festival offers but to experience it in intimate, comfortable settings where the beer is cheap and the parking is easy.
