This summer, the second annual Kambri Film Fest will ignite the imaginations of the young and the young-at-heart over three weekends of free movie magic, all with a focus on females.

There are twelve days of free fun on offer from Thursday the 21st January to Sunday the 7th of February.

The Kambri Film Fest 2021 is part of the HERE I AM: Art by Great Women festival and has been curated to celebrate and elevate the contributions of creative women in the film industry.

There’s a magnificent lineup of films including

  • Frozen II,
  • Moana,
  • Scoob,
  • Dora and the Lost City of Gold,
  • Secret Life of Pets 2,
  • A Dog’s Journey,
  • Ride Like A Girl,
  • Little Women

The family-friendly films begin at 3pm, with most featuring female leads. Evening sessions are geared towards adults and kick off at 7pm.

Thursday nights will highlight Australian women in film including directors Catherine Dwyer (Brazen Hussies), Gillian Armstrong (Star Struck) and Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof).

Friday and Sunday nights will offer female-directed films from the last two years including Golden Globe Award winning dramedy The Farewell, while Saturday nights are reserved for blockbusters you may have missed in 2020 like the action-packed sci-fi time travel adventure Tenet starring Robert Pattinson.

Free popcorn!

In addition to free entry, there’s even one complimentary popcorn and beverage (water, juice or Coke product) for every person who attends!

Parking is available at the ANU Kambri Union Court car park, with complimentary parking on the weekends for up to three hours.
