Gunbalanya youth showcase talents on big screen

12 June 2019

The Gunbalanya Youth Sport and Recreation team have recently been very busy making a video with the youth in the community with Amy Hetherington from the Travelling Film Festival.
Amy is the film maker for the festival so we all went down to the billabong and took sporting equipment and hula hoops and the kids did some interviews with each other.
Some of the questions the kids were asking included ‘what is your name’, ‘where do you come from’ and ‘what is your favourite swimming place’.
The kids really enjoyed the experience of making the film themselves and showing off their sporting skills with basketballs and hula hoops.
The group then all returned to the Youth Centre where the girls were taking footage of themselves while putting make-up on each other and playing basketball. 
The actual screening of the movie was on May 27 at the school basketball courts and the sport and recreation team all worked together to set this up. 
There was a fundraising cook up by the Gunbalanya Youth Advisory Group and a face-painting station hosted by the Youth, Sport and Recreation team in Gunbalanya. 
It was a great night enjoyed by all and lots of people, of all ages, attended the event.  
It was great to see everyone enjoying seeing themselves on the big screen.
