Foreign Film Nights are returning to The Riverlink in Maitland this Friday, with its first film ‘Talking About Trees’ already sold out.
The series of free open air movie nights make up part of the annual Spring Going Global theme, where The Levee celebrates the cultures of the world and Maitland’s multi-cultural community.
Three different films will be showing over separate Friday nights during September, two that are already sold out.
The Levee Public Programs Officer David Graham said the return of the event was a positive sign amidst the pandemic.
“We’re so excited to be able to bring the Foreign Film Nights back to The Levee again this year,” he said.
“We hope people will enjoy the films while also enjoying some of the great cuisines influenced by cultures from around the world at The Levee.
“Safety is a priority for us and a COVID Safe Plan is in place for the nights. With only a 30 person capacity at The Riverlink, we knew it was going to book out, but to reach capacity so quickly told us that the community was happy to see the return of the event.”
The first Foreign Film Nights event will start at 6pm on Friday 4 September. Though it’s booked out, the community is encouraged to enjoy the local global food options on offer.
