Indigenous film in focus at Busselton CinefestOZ
The South West indigenous community will be highlighted at this year’s CinefestOZ with the launch of IndigifestOZ.
Community Day with IndigifestOZ will be a fully immersive experience for film lovers showcasing Indigenous film, food and products.
Set to take place on August 28, organisers are calling on the indigenous community to join in and ensure the inaugural event is a success by opening a stall at the event.
CinefestOZ community manager Gabrielle Whirledge said the day will provide an opportunity for the region’s indigenous businesses and organisations to showcase their culture alongside renowned and emerging Aboriginal filmmakers.
“This event is all about bringing the community and CinefestOZ together to share experiences and celebrate indigenous filmmaking,” she said.
“This will be a great day out for local families ... (being) able to experience the extensive indigenous filmmaking scene as well as learn new skills and talents.
“Some of the most important films have come from Indigenous community.”
The not-for-profit film festival has partnered with the Busselton Tennis Club to host the community day with stallholders encouraged to get in touch to take advantage of the economic opportunity at their new clubhouse.
