Village Journal 310
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.
The genius of Ozu is in the compassion and empathy he brings to the portrayal of human nature through the subtle power of film. His virtuosity in telling universal stories, simply and evocatively, makes this film one that lingers in memory.
‘Sooner or later, everyone who loves movies comes to Ozu’.
October dinner and short films
Federal Films has been going strong for 14 years, presenting a wide range of adult films and kids matinee movies while provid- ing local schools with a valuable fundraising opportunity through catering at our monthly screenings.
We’re proud of our motto of ‘bringing together community through film and food’ and our continuing success is testament to the community support we’ve enjoyed over the years.
Once a year we hold our own fundraising dinner and short films evening to enable us to pay the costs to keep going and this year it’s on Saturday 10 October.
We’ve chosen an eclectic mix of extraordinary short films to surprise and entertain you during the fabulous Asian inspired three course meal we’ll be serving.
Once again, the wonderful Belinda Jeffery has lovingly designed our menu to ensure another sensational evening of fine cuisine.
We’ll greet you with a glass of bubbly, allow plenty of time for socialising and our team of cooks will prepare and serve you at your table, so all you have to do is enjoy yourselves.
Tickets are $35 per person for FFS members and $40 for non-members, and BYO drinks.
This is a night that few locals ever miss and it’s booked out every year so don’t hesitate to call Fran on 6688 4134 or email:
