ABOUT FLINDERS FLICKS
We are a film club based in Quorn, run by volunteers, holding monthly events for members in partnership with Emily’s Bistro. Membership is free and you can join up at the door. $10 covers cost of supper. Donations towards the projector fund are appreciated as you enter and will be used to purchase of a new sound system soon. Flinders Flicks is a member of the Australian Film Societies Federation. More information is available at www.flindersflicks.org Become a volunteer and receive training and access to equipment.

Flinders Flicks are looking for volunteer helpers to support our larger and outdoor events. These occur about once a year and involve setting up a large screen, a projector and running cables. Then you get to stick around and enjoy the movie.

Training is provided, which includes:

  • How to set up a data projector and run a movie from a DVD player or presentation from a laptop.
  • How to connect up a sound system.
  • How to set up a screen.

These great skills are useful to anyone who wants to use a projector to present a business demo, host a movie night, or to do a presentation of their artwork in a virtual exhibition. By volunteering you’ll get the skills and have access to the equipment.

Once you have done the basic training and have assisted as a volunteer, you will have access to the Flinders Flicks loan equipment and can book it out for your own event.

Next training session will occur on 26 or 27 Feb 2015. To take part please email info (at) flindersflicks.org, or post a message on our facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/flindersflicksSA

Volunteers are a help at any of our events, so even if you can’t help with setting up an occasional outdoor events Support is also gratefully appreciated to volunteer ushers (you can help people find their way to a seat or a loo in the dark) and door support (you help people become a member if they aren’t already). We offer benefits to volunteers in the form of access to movies and special events.

Nosferatu at Desert Fringe

Posted by on January 19th, 2010

Nosferatu

Quorn resident and composer, Matthew Timmis, presented a new music performance piece in accompaniment to a screening of the film noir classic Nosferatu.

This one-off event was presented at Desert Fringe (a regional presentation of the Adelaide Fringe) on Saturday 27th February at 4 PM, at The Institute (Commercial Road Port Augusta).

Performers included the Desert Voices choir, three rock bands, and other musicians, and the soundtrack composed by Matthew was synchronised to the film and performed live. The event was highly successful and Matthew and the performers hope to present the event again at some stage, possibly in Adelaide. (more…)

Flinders Flicks in 2010

Posted by on January 15th, 2010

Flinders Flicks is a film society based in Quorn, South Australia. We get together to enjoy interesting, films in a friendly local venue.

We have been running film nights since 2007, mostly in Quorn but occasionally in other towns or venues in the Flinders Ranges.

In 2010 we are working with neighbouring communities and groups so that film screenings can happen in other Flinders Ranges towns. We are interested in hearing from groups who would like access to the screening equipment and training, to be able to hold their own Flinders Flicks film nights. Contact us for further info.
