Some great films not to be missed
There is lots happening in the film space in the next month so check these out:
- BOFA is presenting the Tasmanian Premiere screenings of Sixteen Legs, the story of a spider endemic to Tasmania which has survived virtually un-noticed since before humans and which has – to say the least- an unorthodox sex life (the mate can become dinner if not careful!) and has been filmed underground in almost zero light. The Tramshed, Inveresk Precinct, Launceston, Wednesday, October 25th, 6.30pm. Tix at http://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/sixteen-legs-launceston-film-screening-bofa-special-event-tickets-38258302613.
