  • Doco: Big Dreamers, 7pm Picture House.Tully was a prosperous town in tropical north Queensland, until Brazil dumped its sugar surplus on the global market. The locals call a meeting to save the town from financial disaster. Ron Hunt stands up and proposes to build The World’s Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully’s rainfall record of 7.98 metres in 1950, declaring that it will put Tully on the map.With budget blowouts, clashing personalities, and construction endlessly delayed by rain, Ron wonders whether he has made the right decision.

    This fun, eccentric, cult film BIG DREAMERS features the construction of the Biggest Gumboot in the world. Dispersed throughout the main narrative are small vignettes highlighting other Big Things around Australia.

    For the film’s director, Camille Hardman, who was working on a documentary about Australia’s big things — the Big Banana, the Big Peanut, the Big Cow — the monolithic welly was manna from heaven!

  • Community Event: Where is your YES for Alternative Housing Options? 6:30pm Picture House. Bruns Eco Village, Social Habitat Housing, North Coast Community Housing and the Green Institute are hosting a community workshop evening. Solutions to housing affordability and alternatives to the current national ownership model might be varied and fraught, but they’re right at our fingertips, if we can face the challenges together. Change is inevitable. Positive change is preferable. What will you bring to the table?Listen to an interview with Luke Stickels, community organiser with the Green Institute, on the Affordable Housing event workshop. “Our focus for this collaboration with Bruns Eco Village and Social Habitat Housing is on helping people interested in eco- and community housing, intentional communities and other affordable housing alternatives find out about best practice, the big challenges, and where and how we find those sweet spots of negotiation and collaboration with the community.”
