Festival a window into other world

WE DON'T call ourselves The Lucky Country for nothing.

Figures from the UN high Commission for Refugees show there are 9.2 million refugees across the world today.

Australia celebrates its involvement in giving people hope and home during Refugee Week.

This year we're lucky to have the Australian Refugee Short Film Festival coming to the Jetty Theatre, Saturday 23 June, with three showings at 10am, 1pm and 6.30pm.

The evening session will turn into a party, with dance and music by former refugees and new Coffs Coastians.

Cultural Café, which specialises in African delicacies, will be providing the snacks.

The 2012 selection includes the award winning UK short film War School (pictured).

Working with a war and peace theme, director Ben Newman came up with a simple story - transplanting the training of child soldiers into a British classroom setting.

War School tells a fictional story paralleling a reality faced by more than 300,000 children in over 30 countries worldwide - being a child soldier.

Entry to the Australian Refugee Short Film Festival showings are free, but tickets are required - call the Jetty Theatre Box Office on 6652 8088.
