Weekend of world movies at Alice Springs Cinemas

Another innovative move by the Alice Springs Cinemas builds on its commitment to enlivening Todd Street North and encouraging a richer film culture in town. They’ll host a movie festival over the coming weekend that gets away from the diet of mainstream new releases. There’ll be foreign films, documentary, art-house, action and comedy and a festival atmosphere with foyer and alfresco dining and wining.

 

Film festival travels to Alice Springs Cinemas

MODIFIED 3.45pm, February 6, to include feedback from the festival on the reason for changing venue. 

 

For many years a fixture of the Araluen Arts Centre calendar, the Sydney Travelling Film Festival this year will be staged at the Alice Springs Cinemas. Owner Paul Darvodelsky is delighted: he’s a fan of “this sort of film” – arthouse and independent – and has made an effort to program them. Hosting the festival will be a way of getting the message across that the cinemas have broadened their offerings.
