FILMS BY THEMES 2018 PROGRAMME
EAT / DRINK / LIVE 2018
EAT.DRINK.LIVE is supported by The Plough Inn. Built in 1831 the inn has been re-modelled to expose the original 1830s fireplace and walls with convict-made bricks, timber and wrought iron. The Plough Inn is situated directly across from the Village Cinemas Launceston and is the site for Launceston Film Society functions. The upstairs lounge has been set aside as the perfect spot for conversations with friends after a film, a coffee, drink, a snack or a more substantial meal!
Eight years in the making, this intimate yet funny and uplifting film features Suzy and her adventurer husband Jon Muir, who live a simple life off the grid growing their own food.

Ronni Kahn, founder of OzHarvest, is taking on politicians and big business to expose an inconvenient truth: that four million tonnes of edible food is discarded in landfill in Australia every year.
Generous Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen), wins a poker game and buys a decrepit restaurant (the delightfully rubbish Golden Pint, a single painting of Jimi Hendrix adorning its otherwise bare walls) with his prize money.
