Event Description

This NAIDOC week, celebrate the powerful contribution of our First Nations community to Australia's arts and culture scene through our very own NAIDOC Film Festival.

Taking place across both branches of Melton City Libraries, the NAIDOC Film Festival showcases three films commemorating First Nations peoples achievements and contributions.

Join us at Melton Library to view the documentary film 'Namatjira Project'. Namatjira Project is the iconic story of the Namatjira family, tracing their quest to regain the copyright to their grandfather’s artwork. From the remote Australian desert to the opulence of Buckingham Palace – this film illuminates the powerful story of Albert Namatjira’s life, and the future of the Central Desert watercolour movement that he pioneered.

NAIDOC Week (National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee) occurs annually in July, and celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

'The Namatjira Project' is rated M. Running time 1hr 26 min.
