5 February 2016

ANU Pasifika Australia is hosting the Canberra Pasifika Film Festival. The festival will take place on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 February 2016 in the Hedley Bull Centre, ANU. The festival is to open on Friday night at 6:30pm with the showing of Papua New Guinean film Tep Tok. Tep Tok follows the journey of filmmaker and tatu artist, Julia Mageau Gray from Mekeo, as she learns more about tatu and women's empowerment in Central Province.

The Saturday afternoon session is a free family event featuring the film Jilel from the Marshall Islands. The session will begin with a live tatu exhibition from 12pm by Julia Mageau Gray, who will be marking a young woman of Papuan heritage. The festival closes with the musical film 'Groove City'.

Tickets to the opening and closing sessions are $20 each and $30 for both sessions. To purchase tickets please click here.

Food and drinks will be available at both these sessions and ANU Pasifika Australia will be having a sausage sizzle during the Saturday family session.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the ANU Pacific Institute, the Micronesian and Australian Friends Association and the State, Society and Governance in Melanesia Program.
