BREC will swing back into action sooner than expected opening their doors for the BREC International Film Festival: Winter Sundays from 12th July – 9th August. And it’s all thanks to a big helping hand from Southern Ports.
“Our stellar Winter Sundays film line up will take even the most inveterate South West traveller on the globetrotting journey of their dreams – and no need to quarantine when you get home!”, said Fiona de Garis, BREC’s Executive Director.
“We have been desperately missing our wonderful volunteers and committed patrons these last few months. So we are incredibly grateful to Southern Ports for stepping up to support our film programme. It is a joy to be able to begin the process of re-opening BREC and once again contributing to a rich cultural life for Bunbury and the South West region”, she continued.
With seven highly acclaimed and very different films, from seven different countries, screening across five consecutive Sundays there is sure to be something to pique your interest.
“We’ve a few more comedies than usual”, said de Garis, “We thought that might be needed, but lovers of drama and documentaries won’t miss out.”
Southern Ports Authority CEO Steve Lewis says, “At Southern Ports a big part of our job is connecting Western Australia to the world through trade, so partnering with BREC to bring this reimagined International Film Festival to South West audiences has a nice synergy.”
“This is a time when we are all looking for hope, inspiration and a deeper understanding of our common humanity. Coming together to experience these diverse films and be exposed to new cultures and ideas is a great way to achieve this.”
“We know BREC has been doing it tough, like many in the South West, and we are keen to play our part in creating a sustainable future for this vital community hub”, Lewis concluded.
Films screen at 11am and 2pm and between sessions you can catch up with friends in the Sky Bar while enjoying the talents of local musicians playing live. Due to limited capacity all tickets must be pre-purchased online.
