About ReelOzInd! Short Film Festival Screening
We are proud to be a screening partner of ReelOzInd! (thanks to the Australia Indonesia Centre) to help foster closer connections between Australia and Indonesia - "because near neighbours should be friends, not mysteries".
There is no other film festival that brings Australian and Indonesian filmmakers together to share their work and stories in the same forum. From documentary to fiction and animation, be amazed by the incredible rising Australian and Indonesian talent as they take on this year's theme Suara/Voice.
The film festival is also a competition with an esteemed panel of judges. For our guests, you can vote for your favourite films here.
The short 10-minute films are rated G/PG and M so school-aged children are welcome to attend too (run time 80 mins).
In 2016, Corethics discovered the harrowing reality that 60% of Bali’s water table was declared dried. Since then, the team at Corethics has been supporting IDEP’s Bali Water Protection Program to assist in addressing depleting water supplies - recharge wells and much-needed education.
We feel a deep sense of gratitude that we are fortunate enough to have clean running water available to us every day here in Australia. That is why we believe clean water should be available for our neighbours in Bali too.
Right now, as the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic it has never been more important to have access to clean running water.
So, how can you help?
