Flinders Flicks is a film society which was started in Quorn, South Australia in late 2007 and since then, films have been screened for members on and off over the years. We are currently presenting movies in partnership with Emily’s Bistro so that we can have a social night in a comfortable venue with friendly cafe style service and a movie room feel.

The film society offers a social gathering to enjoy interesting, hard to find movies in a friendly local place. We also have family film nights, outdoor cinema events and sometimes hold film events in communities in or near the Flinders Ranges, South Australa. Films presented include: interesting rare stuff, locally made, young film makers, australian features and cult classics, and good quality films that satisfy our souls.

Flinders Flicks offers our community in Quorn, as well as visiting tourists and film makers, the opportunity to see locally produced films, Australian films, short films and “stuff we found in the shed” in a relaxed, intimate and friendly environment… a bit like visiting your friends for a movie night!

Have you been wondering what the 2010 Film Maker in Residence project will be about? Our visiting film maker, Malcolm McKinnon, has been exploring possible stories of interest for a couple of new short films about the Flinders Ranges Region, and has decided to link into the stories of another awesome project also happening in the region… the Flinders Flavours book to be published during 2010.

Flinders Flavours is a collection of stories about the food and culture of the central Flinders Ranges, primarily researched and written by local writer, Tarla Kramer (who has also written for Flinders News regional papers). Other contributors include oral historian John Mannion, local artist Liz Collins, among others. Each story is based on interviews or anecdotes of the food growing, preparation, making and eating, of recipes and flavours found in the region.

Malcolm McKinnon’s residency films will be based on stories from a chapter of the book about foods made from local feral animals such as goat, and rabbit. He will be conducting interviews and collecting video footage during early April and the finished films will be ready to be screened in a couple of months.

It is hoped to extend this project later in the year by inviting local people to add their own contributions, by making short documentaries and photo movies of their own recipes, which will be collected into a video web site. The Quorn Area School are among local groups who have already expressed interest in working with Malcolm Mckinnon to participate in the project.

The 2010 Film Maker in Residence project is being supported by Arts SA, Flinders Flicks and is being made with the support of Jane Egerton-Warburton (project coordinator) and Cindi Drennan (project manager).
