The “Woonjeegaribay” Aboriginal Film Festival is being held during National Indigenous Sorry Week 2007 and will commemorate the local initiation of the nation wide Sorry Books Campaign in 1997 and decade of Reconciliation in the Wingecarribee.
The three-day Film Festival is offering a one-day school program and four sessions that will screen a wide range of films including an inspiring new release “Kanyini”, a wonderful ‘season of shorts’, a ‘golden oldie’, “The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith” and several moving documentaries. This second local Aboriginal Film Festival will celebrate again the multiple layers of culture and inspiring creative talents of Australian Aboriginal film makers.
The Festival is being sponsored by the Wingecarribee Community Foundation Ted Kennedy Aboriginal Fund, The Yamanda Aboriginal Association and the Empire Cinema and is supported by the Wingecarribee Reconciliation Group.
The Festival is being directed by Yamanda Aboriginal Associati on members Aunty Val and Trish Levitt, working with local film maker Susan Davis.
Proceeds from the Festival will go to the WCF Ted Kennedy Aboriginal Fund to assist local Aboriginals, including support in the area of education.
