The Lake of Scars accepted to Castlemaine Documentary Festival

It's been a mammoth couple of months for our documentary on environment, heritage and reconciliation, The Lake of Scars.

After premiering at Antenna Documentary Film Festival in Sydney in February, the film has gone on to be screened in cinemas in every Australian state and territory (apart from Tasmania and W.A. to date). From Darwin's beautiful Deckchair cinema to Canberra's National Film and Sound Archive, Gold Coast Film Festival to sold-out screenings in Bendigo, near the film's filming location on Dja Dja Wurrung country,

The reviews have been great - not least the four stars received from everyone's favourite half of Margaret and David, David Stratton, who sang its praise in the Weekend Australian.

A coming highlight for us is our showing at the Castlemaine Documentary Festival in early July - coinciding with NAIDOC week. Uncle Jack Charles, our storyteller, will be in attendance with director Bill Code and cultural advisor Ngarra Murray, so get down if you can on July 3rd.

Tickets to all of these screenings are linked to from our screenings page here.

We've been blown away by the passion of people who want to put screenings on themselves; charities, community groups, government agencies and more have all shown interest. If you'd like screen in the local town hall or similar, drop us a line -

Above all, if you would like to help us get this film where it needs to be - changing hearts and minds in schools, universities and more, please consider a tax-deductible donation to our educational impact campaign to pay for the resources which will get it in front of teachers ands students.
