A weekend of film and country hospitality – Blue Heeler Film Festival celebrating creativity in the Upper Hunter
Escape the city for the weekend and head to the Upper Hunter to celebrate the talent of filmmakers nationwide at Muswellbrook’s Blue Heeler Film Festival – on Saturday, 19 October, 2019.
There are plenty of wonderful places to visit: lunch at Hunter Belle Cheese, choose from a wide range of top notch olive oils and other products at Pukara Estate, enjoy a glass of award winning pinot gris at Two Rivers Winery and pick up a couple of bottles from the cellar door to take home.
The Muswellbrook Regional Art Centre is open from 10am to 1pm on weekends and well worth a visit and make sure to make time to take a photo of the iconic Blue Heeler Statue on the town’s main street.
After the sight-seeing adventures head into town, grab a seat and settle back to enjoy the film festival, kicking off at 6pm on Saturday night. Up for grabs is the prestigious Golden Bluey and $10,000 prize in the Open Category, as well as a laptop computer and $3,000 for the Student Bluey winner in the Secondary Category.
For a chance to win one of these amazing prizes head to the Blue Heeler Film Festival website to enter your short film in the competition. Entries close on 6 October, so get in quick.
The film festival will be on from 6pm – 9pm in the outdoor area of the Upper Hunter Innovation Precinct, adjacent to the Muswellbrook library – we look forward to seeing you there!
The festival thanks Muswellbrook Shire Council, Bengalla Mining Company and Harvey Norman Muswellbrook for their ongoing support.
