2021 CinefestOZ Community Screenings offer the opportunity to enjoy some great Australian films for free. This year’s Community Screenings Program is curated to the theme of GROUNDED. With the turmoil and uncertainty that 2020 brought to Australians, we present you with a Community Screenings set which aims to ground us all. You might find that country and nature grounded you or even your work or passion projects. Let these films remind us what brings us all back to this beautiful earth.

10.00am – Cinesnaps Short Film Finalists 2020 – Runtime 32 mins. Director: Various.
Each year students are invited to enter the Cinesnaps short film Competition. These are the seven finalist films as chosen by a prestigious Cinesnaps jury for their strong film techniques, storytelling and a clear connection with the theme “Suitcase”.

11.00am - Backyard Ashes – Runtime 90 mins. Director: Mark Grentell.
When a bitter rivalry between two neighbours escalates after a bizarre accident, they agree to settle the score with a backyard cricket match.

1.00pm - The History of Australian Surfing – 87min run time. Director: Nat Young.
A companion to Nat Young’s legendary History of Surfing this ground breaking documentary presents the history of surfing in Australia from its origin in 1915, through its development with wooden boards, the Malibu revolution of the ‘50s and ‘60s, the short board revolution of the ‘70s and into the radical ‘80s. Part parody, part memoir, it is an insightful look at the early days of what has largely become a national pastime.
