Presented by GJ Productions
SAT 1 OCT, 3.00PM - 6.30PM
The Roadshow Screening
This will be the first in a series of screenings to highlight our creative island communities featured in the Island Magic documentary alongside arts workshops and performances from locals who appear in the documentary.
This screening will include a special performance by the Joe Geia Band, handpicked collection of artisan market stalls, weaving circles, food stalls as well as local food outlets offering special meals on the night and a licensed bar. The event is free to attend but a registration ticket is required for entry.
This documentary was produced by Jo Ariel and filmed by George Ferrell, both local residents. They have extensive media careers and wanted to use their skills to give back to the Southern Moreton Bay Islands by documenting and sharing the wonderful, positive stories which abound in this community.
The documentary also explores the deep connections the artists have with their environment and how it inspires their creative output. Island Magic showcases the traditions and culture of the Quandamooka people, who are the custodians of the lands and seas. The Canaipa | Russell Island event is the second public screening of the documentary and the makers are planning to tour it to all the Redland Coast Islands and beyond.
