NAIDOC WEEK 2023 – BICHENO Film Showcase

Bicheno Hall

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is For Our Elders. NAIDOC Week is a time for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to celebrate their care of country, and their history of survival as a nation.  This week is an opportunity for all Tasmanians to participate and celebrate with their local Aboriginal community.

At this year’s NAIDOC Week Film Showcase, our second year running, we are going completely regional hitting Bicheno, Scottsdale, Smithton and New Norfolk, in that order!

We are taking the film Ablaze on the road. The film follows Yorta Yorta man, opera singer and Senior Lecturer in Indigenous Arts and Culture at the Victorian College of the Arts Tiriki Onus on a journey to discover if his grandfather Bill Onus was the first Aboriginal film maker. Bill was an entrepreneur, performer and activist, being particularly active during the 1967 Referendum.
