Kyogle Readers and Writers Festival isn’t only about books – it is about stories.

Two films telling unique local stories will be screened at the festival at noon on Saturday, May 18.

The Crossing Project and Tinnie Heroes will be shown at Kyogle Cinema.

After the screening, there is a Q&A with Jenny Fraser who features in The Crossing Project and Susanna Freymark who wrote and produced the flood film Tinnie Heroes with Jimmy Malecki.

The Crossing Project features creative responses from local writers about the many waterways and the old wooden bridges criss-crossing the Northern Rivers of Bundjalung Country.

Beautifully shot, seeing this film on the big screen at Kyogle Cinema is what the film – and you deserve.

Tinnie Heroes is a short 20-minute film about the bravery of locals who jumped into tinnies to rescue people from rising floodwaters in the 2022 floods.

Tickets are $10 at  Kyogle Cinema.
