The Cockatoo Island Film Festival in Sydney

Where will you be 24 October? I’ll be sipping a fine cocktail and listening to live music before watching the premiere of The Master at the opening night Gala for Cockatoo Island Film Festival. Only accessible by ferry, this gem of an island is one of Sydney Harbour’s favourite summer locations for music festivals, art exhibitions, and film festivals. Also headlining is Tim Burtons’ Frankenweenie and Manic, starring Elijah Wood. Live music acts include Arrested Development, Matt Corby, and local talent Bluejuice. A perfect way to spend an afternoon while the sun sets. The Cockatoo Island Film Festival is only on for 5 days, from 24 – 28 October.

INVITE: 6 Aussie artists will turn Sydney's aMBUSH Gallery into a giant canvas for a night!

We've assembled a group of talented young creatives and armed them each with a new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Surface Book on which to create an original piece of art. The big reveal of these works will take place on December 10 at an immersive event at Sydney's aMBUSH Gallery. If you want to come along, let us know why here.
