What a day. 2 Festivals at once, 3 sold out screenings, 180 people of all ages, many more people turned away, loads of great films, tons of memories, 100 ice-creams, 3kg of popcorn, 7 ushers, and one AMAZING Small Cinema on Bold St.
People really really enjoyed themselves and the films. So much hard work in developing this screening, from the research and collecting of memories, to the madness of setting up the day before (thanks Danny for helping out! You were a life saver!), and the day itself. It was truly special.
