Surveillance Film Festival
Past Event
As the enormous Big Brother … er, Big Screen – looks down on us all from on high this winter, we’ll keep you rooted to the spot with a tantalisingly terrifying line-up of spy and surveillance-themed films. Whether you’re a junior cryptologist in the making, a bonafide Bond-aficionado or a card-carrying sci-fi buff, we’ve got a spooky, thrilling or mysterious film to unleash your inner spy. We’ll have the deckchairs out, so it’s time to bring a blanky and get cosy this winter, under the watchful gaze of The Eyes, for the Surveillance Film Festival at Fed Square. Free popcorn will be available from the Woofy’s Eye Spy Cart on Saturday 2 and 9 July, and Sunday 3 and 10 July at the start of each film and will be available until stocks run out. You can also purchase a blanket for a gold coin donation from the Woofy’s Eye Spy Cart near the Main Stage, before each film screening on Saturday 2 and 9 July, and Sunday 3 and 10 July. All proceeds will go to the Fred Hollows Foundation Indigenous Australia Program. We’ll also have free loaded hot chocolates and eye themed sweet treats from the Woofy’s Eye Spy Cart near the Main Stage from 6pm-9pm (or until stocks run out) on Saturday 6 August.
