Thanks to everyone who came along to our April screening – ‘The Eagle Huntress’ attracted one of our biggest crowds yet!
Our May screening is the 2017 thriller ‘Jungle’, a biographical survival drama directed by Greg McLean (of ‘Wolf Creek’ fame). Come along on 3rd May, 7.30pm at the Killara Centre to see Daniel Radcliffe in a distinctly non-Harry Potter-esque role.
The April film screening is ‘The Eagle Huntress’, which tells the story of a young girl (Aisholpan) who is training to become the first female eagle hunter in 12 generations of her family. Billed as a documentary, Otto Bell has since faced questioning about whether any of the scenes were ‘staged’ for the purpose of the film. True or not, this is a beautifully shot film set in the stunning mountains of Mongolia.
You can watch the trailer here and you can see the full film at the Killara Centre, Camperdown on Thursday 5th April at 7.30pm.
Our March screening is on Thursday 1st March at 7.30pm. This crime/drama tells the story of the police inspector who hunts for poet/politician Pablo Neruda after he goes into hiding in 1948. This film has subtitles, which will be displayed at the top of the screen. Come along early to snag a front row seat!

Here at the Corangamite Film Society, we find that the best way to express ourselves is through film.

We ask that you bring a plate of supper to share – we want to be able to thank Christine (The Minister for Suppers) and give her the night off too! Hope to see you there…
The November screening for Corangamite Film Society is “The Hunt for the Wilderpeople”, a film from 2016 that tells the story of a boy and his foster father who became lost in the New Zealand wilderness. Come for the film – and stay for the supper!
It’s a little bit drama, a little bit mystery and a little bit sci-fi – and you can stay for a little bit of supper afterwards! This month’s film is ‘Ex_Machina’ and it features a beautiful robot and a computer coder called Caleb. Come along to the Killara Centre on Thursday 5th October at 7.30pm to find out more…
The AGM last week saw a change in committee members – and we are excited to have some new faces on board!

We farewell Garry, Anna and Jared from the committee, and thank them for their hard work in previous years.
As always – if you have any suggestions or ideas, please email us at email@example.com, or chat to one of the committee members.
Our September film ‘Elle’ is an adaptation of Philippe Djian’s book ‘Oh…’
The question is – which is better, the book or the film? And should you watch the film before or after you’ve read the book? Decisions, decisions…
