Park Flicks Winter

 

After our inaugural Summer Series in February and March, Park Flicks is back this Winter with a great line-up of films to nurture the soul and give us food for thought.

The Vic Park Collective is thrilled to partner with the Vic Park Community Centre to screen three first-class films in August, curated by Tom Vincent from the Perth International Festival and touching on topics such as community action for the environment, mental health and what makes us happy, and the power of multicultural friendships.

 

Park Flicks is FREE and everyone is invited!

All films will be screened indoors at the Community Centre, a fully accessible, centrally located venue. Doors open at 6pm, screenings start at 7pm.

Get a bite from a local food truck, enjoy the company of your neighbours and some excellent cinema. We’ll bring the popcorn!

The Community Centre is located at the Kent St of the Leisurelife complex, and we strongly encourage everyone to either walk or ride bikes to the venue.

We can’t wait to see everyone in August some awesome flicks!

ABOUT THE FILM

A parable of tolerance and understanding, this is the story of a cross-generational, cross-cultural friendship between an elderly Muslim and his young Jewish protégé in Paris in the 1960’s. With a sweet charm, the movie features an outstanding performance by Omar Sharif as he teaches the younger character to slow down, express his yearnings and open his heart to the wonders around him.

 

This film is rated M (Medium Level Sex Scene and Adult Themes)

Park Flicks Summer

 

At the end of Summer 2019 the Vic Park Collective proudly brought Park Flicks to the community for the first time. We delivered a series of four awesome documentaries to nurture your soul and give you food for thought. Park Flicks was FREE and everyone was invited!

We partnered with key community organisations around town to screen recent, first-class films that entertain and touch on issues related to urbanism, multiculturalism and ageing. The films were screened on parks and reserves in four different suburbs within the Town – Parham Reserve in Carlisle, John Macmillan Park in East Vic Park, Memorial Gardens in Vic Park and Rayment Park in Lathlain.

Park Flicks was proud to partner with the Victoria Park Community Centre, Connect Victoria Park and the Wirrpanda Foundation.

 

The original series was funded by the Town of Victoria Park through its Community Grants program.
