Where is it: Centred around Brisbane’s cultural heartland of the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, but also in other venues across Brisbane!
Why we love it: Such a varied range of films as well as a peek behind the scenes, live entertainment and showbiz excitement!
Tell me more: The Brisbane International Film Festival is the largest film festival in Queensland and it features over one hundred short and feature films packed into nearly two entertaining weeks. While there is a focus on locally produced or influenced cinema, there are movies from all over the world and covering all genres. It’s an exciting time for lovers of cinema, and it’s fantastic to be able to take part in some of the excitement! We were very fortunate to be able to share in the experience of the world premiere of ‘The Wishmas Tree’, a fantastic animated movie made right here in Brisbane!
Where is it: Nationwide
What's it all about: Children's Day is celebrated on 04 August every year and is a time for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids and families to celebrate their culture!
How can I join in: Keep an eye out for events planned in your area! There are lots of events detailed on the website, and heaps of schools have special celebrations as well!
Tell me more: We attended the Children's Day celebrations at the State Library of Queensland and spent the morning taking part in a special storytime and doing some craft! There are heaps of events on across the nation and it's a great way for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to celebrate and reinforce their connection to society and their culture! We think that it's a great way to bring all cultures together by creating an increased appreciation and understanding of each other's cultures, plus there are lots of fun activities!
