Top Flix So Far


Hidden Gems

Veins of the World is one of the hidden gems getting rave reviews from our online audience around Australia. A changing lifestyle on the Mongolian steppes. A family tragedy. A brave boy steps up.  Inspiring and beautiful.

Of Horses and Men surely wins the prize for the most quirky, dark and humorous film of the festival. Kolbeinn tries to secretly court the horse-riding lady he fancies….. while the whole valley watches. What could go wrong?

Ready, Zoom… Chat!

Wilder than Wild is as current as last summer’s headlines. Watch in awe as fires threaten whole communities. Be amazed at the heroism of the firies. Get motivated to make change! Join us on Saturday 16th May at 4.30 to hear filmmaker Kevin White swap stories from the Californian mega-fires with Tasmanian firefighting experts, and give us your thoughts. To attend just Zoom in using this link.

Wine Calling invites you to leave self-isolation behind and mix (safely) with France’s new wave of organic French winemakers. Closer to home you can join Karina Dambergs (Fermentasmania), Shane Holloway (Delamere Vineyard), Cynthea Semmens (Marion’s Vineyard), Sam Connew (Stargazer) and Curly Haslam-Coates (Vintage Tasmania) to talk through the pros and cons of Tasmania’s organic, biodynamic and traditional wine making in today’s internationalised wine industry. To attend just Zoom in using this link.

And check out these never to be repeated Tassie wine offers at Wine Tasmania.
