8:00pm. Written & Directed by Jonathan Biggins. Everyone wants a piece of the party pie in this modern ripper of a comedy. The country town of Coriole is getting ready for Australia Day – a time to crack open a frothy, stick a snag on the barbie and celebrate what it means to be a true blue Aussie.
The Australia Day committee is gearing up to put on the town’s biggest party – but they have a few issues of their own to sort out first. With everyone from the Greens to the local mayor to the CWA wanting a piece of the party pie, it’s proving hard yakka to work out what an Aussie celebration should look like. Nothing is sacred as the national identity is put through the ringer in this thoroughly modern ripper of a comedy! Will the day be fair dinkum after all? Or are there too many roos loose in the community hall? Recommended for 15 years of age and over.

Spanish with English subtitles.
It’s 1966: dedicated schoolteacher Antonio is an obsessive Beatles fan – a passion that carries through to his classroom where he uses the lyrics from “Help!” to teach his pupils English. When he learns that John Lennon is filming on the other side of the country, he drops everything and sets out to find the location, hoping Lennon can help him understand the lyrics to the newly released Revolver LP.
En route, Antonio adopts two hitchhiking runaways: and together the trio travel across the sun-drenched Spanish landscape and learn more about each other – and themselves – than any had expected.
This funny and deeply affecting film is both a farewell to an era of repression and a welcome to a new age, capturing the spirit of both the ‘60s and of a nation aspiring to a better future.
