Here, Today: First Nations Short Films + Conversations celebrates the creativity and ecology of First Nations filmmaking.

Held on Jinibara Country at Maleny Community Centre and in partnership with the Maleny Film Society, Here, Today begins with a screening of the critically acclaimed Warburdar Bununu; Water Shield, where a young leader is devastated when Borroloola Town Camps receive water contamination notices only to rediscover hope in the healing power of culture.

We finish our evening with a selection of Queensland-made First Nations shorts and a panel conversation and Q&A with Warburdar Bununu: Water Shield director Jason De Santolo, local filmmaker John Harvey (Water, Spear, Out of Range), Horizon Festival’s Curator, First Nations Programming and filmmaker Lydia Fairhall (Out of Range) and Screen Queensland’s VP for Indigenous Content and filmmaker Douglas Watkin (Ella, Scrub) for a deep dive into the creativity and ecology behind the films.

Here, Today is catered by Indigenous company Three Little Birds, native / unique / aware.

This event is free for the First Nations community.
