Ho ho ho!! (or bah, humbug! for you scrooges out there)

Come join us for our final screening for 2012 to finish off a bumper year for Australian film.

Main feature: CRACKERS starring Warren Mitchell (Till Death Do Us Part), Peter Rowsthorn (Kath & Kim, the Comedy Company) and Susan Lyons (Come In Spinner, A Country Practice) 1997

Larceny, adultery, sabotage and treachery. Yes, just your typical Christmas with the Dredge family.

Joey Dredge is in trouble… again. He's been expelled from school after throwing himself off the tuckshop roof… again; is haunted by the death of his father; hates his mother's new boyfriend and his bully son; and has just discovered that he has to spend Christmas with the lot of them down at their beach house by the bay.

All looks hopeless until Albert, Joey's long-lost great-grandfather, appears without warning after a stint in prison. Forced to share the back shed with this swearing, farting and devious octogenarian, Joey soon finds himself an unexpected friend and a partner in crime...Between accidentally barbequing the family dog, performing a self-burial and causing his intended step-father to consume a startling amount of hash Joey learns a few very valuable life lessons, which help him to accept the past and embrace the future.

Short film: COOK BOOK by Andrew William Robb (previous co-chair of Advance)
