THE DROVER'S WIFE: THE LEGEND OF MOLLY JOHNSON (2022, Australia, 109 mins, drama, colour, MA15+). Written and directed by Leah Purcell. The perfect story to start our year. Oh, and starring Leah Purcell as Molly. The Henry Lawson classic. Starbox rating: 4.5 (out of 5 stars). A thought provoking beginning to the year.Learn More
LATCHO DROM (1993, French, 103 mins, documentary about Gypsy Music & culture). Celebrating a way of life over 1000 years old. Romany's nomadic culture from its origins in India to all corners of Europe - music, song & dance are food for their souls. Fabulous turnout last night and our Starbox rating: 3.6 (out of 5 stars). Not everyone's cup of tea but some of the images and sounds just stick in your mind.Learn More
DANCING AT LUGHNASA (Irish/UK, 1998, 95 mins, historical drama, colour, PG). The lives of five sisters in 1930s rural Ireland are disrupted when their brother returns home from Africa.Learn More
WFS in conjunction with Seaworks & Pirates Tavern are presenting a free program of two films which tap directly, and very differently, into the Heritage of Hobsons Bay. The first features the Point Gellibrand Pile Light and the other explores the game of Trugo. Screenings will take place in Pirates Tavern and prior to that, Seaworks Maritime Museum will be open from 6pm. Tickets are FREE but you must book a ticket through EVENTBRITE.

THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT! (1956, USA, 99mins, musical/comedy) Originally a vehicle for 'sex symbol' Jane Mansfield but is now remembered as a show case for early rock 'n' roll artists. For the 'Fab 4' it was the inspirational first non-radio experience of many of these artists. Get your bobby sox out!Learn More

THE LOST CITY OF MELBOURNE (2022, Australia, 80 mins, colour, documentary). The attempted ‘modernisation’ of Melbourne in the 1950s destroyed much of the city, including its elegant cinemas and picture palaces. Director Gus Berger’s Melbourne-made documentary, for a brief moment, brings some of them back to life (source the 2022 MIFF program).Learn More
THE COURT JESTER (1955, USA, 101 mins, colour, musical comedy) The greatest comedy ever? There's one way to find out, come along and judge for yourself. Starring Danny Kaye, Angela Lansbury, Glynis Johns, Basil Rathbone and Michael Pate!Learn More
