    Event description

    The Film Club runs at 7.30pm on the first Saturday of each month at Coledale Community Hall. 

    Regularly hosted by local film expert Graham Thorburn and open to anybody interested in seeing, thinking, and having fun talking about films; each Film Club session will start with some background information about the film – the times and context of its making, the people who made it, and something notable about the content or techniques of the film – perhaps even a bit of gossip. After the film screening, there will be a chance to discuss the film. 

    This month's Film Club will be guest-hosted by Catherine Millar. We will be screening WOMAN AT WAR (2018), dir. Benedikt Erlingsson, and starring Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir. Halla is a 50-year-old environmental activist who crusades against the local aluminum industry in Iceland. As her actions grow bolder, her life changes in the blink of an eye when she's finally granted permission to adopt a girl from the Ukraine. 

      Attendance is $7 for SCWC & Screen Illawarra Members, and $10 for general admission. Entry fee includes tea & coffee.


      Film Club is a community event. We encourage people to get involved by coming early to help us set up, or staying to helping pack chairs away.

      Catherine Millar is an award-winning director who has worked on many of Australia’s most critically and commercially successful TV dramas. Her credits are numerous and diverse, spanning drama, crime, comedy, fantasy, young adult and children’s drama. Catherine was the set-up director of the psychological thriller series, The Secret She Keeps for Lingo Pictures and Network Ten. The six-part thriller was a huge success for Network Ten and went on to premiere in the UK on BBC1; this marked a milestone as one of the first Australian TV dramas to screen in primetime on the BBC’s flagship channel in recent years. Catherine’s other credits include the critically acclaimed and award-winning Janet King (Screentime/ABC, 2017), the hugely successful A Place to Call Home (Seven Productions/Foxtel 2016-18l) for which Catherine helmed the series final episodes, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (Every Cloud Productions/ABC, 2013) and fourteen episodes across four seasons of Wentworth (Fremantle/Foxtel, 2013-16). Most recently Catherine directed block 4 of NCIS: Sydney (EndemolShine/ Paramount Plus).
