MudnSaltwater Film Fest May 21

MSFF BNorthDue to popular demand, the short films made for the inaugural 2015 Roebuck Bay MUD SALTwater SHORT FILM FEST, will be shown at Tanami Park, Magabala Rd, Broome North, Saturday May 21.

The FREE event starts at 5pm, so bring a picnic, rug and enjoy sitting under the stars to watch 17 short films about Broome’s coastal waters and lifestyle. The Auzuki food van will be there to purchase food. The event starts with a Smoking Ceremony followed by a series of photos of Broome’s coastal waters, then the short films.

The short films, made by professional and amateur filmmakers, show an immensely beautiful embayment integral to life in Broome. The natural seascape of Roebuck Bay provides a stunning backdrop to Broome; yet, holds many colourful, and at times, violent stories – with the bay strafed in WWII, blasted by powerful cyclones and its cerulean waters and shores providing a supply base and layup area for an emerging pearling industry.
