Full Moon Sunset Cinema was first launched in 2012 with huge attendance; the surprised audience entertained by an impromptu performance by Jack Johnson. BBFF2013 will again host this FREE outdoor event next to the Byron Bay Surf Club located on Main Beach, commencing at dusk.
Screening at the sunset cinema will be Inuk, a heart-warming story with an all-Inuit cast about a young man’s journey to reconnect with his cultural roots, winner of last year’s most prestigious award and BBFF2012’s ‘Best Film’ of the festival.
J’aimee Skippon-Volke, Festival Director, said ‘We’re thrilled to offer this free event to our community in Byron Bay and to present a film as wonderful as Inuk. It’s received a remarkable 22 International awards and is sure to touch a few hearts. Surrounded by the beach and the full moon, the setting will be nothing short of magical’.
The Byron community is encouraged to stroll on down to make a night of it with family and friends, bring a picnic rug, a basket full of delicious nibbles and high spirits, celebrating all that the Byron Bay Film Festival and community has to offer – natural beauty, diversity, authenticity and fun! Be sure to secure your spot by arriving early.
Due to the weather, the outdoor screening has been postpone and will take place on the full moon in late March. For public safety and comfort for all, the event will be an alcohol free zone and those who are under 15 must please be accompanied by an adult. Inuk is a PG-rated film.
