Event Details

Celebrate seniors month with the Event Cinemas B.OLD film festival! It showcases extraordinary Queenslanders of a certain age doing amazing things across the state to challenge negative stereotypes about ageing.

It will be featuring 10 such as an internationally renowned artist in her 90s. A band of firefighters aged 60+. A dance troop who call themselves The Rolling Bones as well as the Coastal Care Clowns who visit children’s hospitals to spread cheer. These are the stories of Queenslanders that will challenge the stereotypes of Seniors in our state. 

Tickets at Event Cinemas are just $10 each. Also, $2 from each ticket sale will go to The Benevolent Society to support their Every Age Counts campaign.

The B.OLD film festival was created to kickstart community conversations about ageing, ageism, and the representation of ageing in our society. It showcases the diverse and extraordinary experiences and contributions of older Queenslanders across our state.

Organisers hope that The B.OLD film festival aims to make seniors more visible in the local community. As well as challenge people’s perceptions around what it means to get older in Queensland in the 21st century. 

The event will be held on October 5th and 7th at Event Cinemas.
