    We will also be showing films made by filmmakers from culturally diverse backgrounds.

    There will be a mini-market in the forecourt from 3pm, featuring products made by RJ Dradi the Label, Bandesh Wine and Spirits, Rue Liew Ceramics and more. Films start at 4pm. There will also be a special performance at the end of the screenings!

    *Welcome Merchant is a social enterprise that collaborates with refugee-owned businesses in Australia. We promote them for free on our online directory and social media channels. We also run free skill building workshops for these entrepreneurs. Your ticket purchase will help us keep these services for free and will go a long way to helping refugees and people seeking asylum.
