When: Monday August 30
Time: 6:30pm for a 7:00pm screening. The session will go for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.  
Where: The Capri Cinema, Goodwood

Cost is free, although if you can, please buy a glass of something or some Jaffas to roll down the aisles, as all the takings will go to helping The Capri to weather the storm brought on by the pandemic.

The evening will consist of three short films showcasing the Independent Film Award winning (R) Evolution, The AACTA award winning short Gargoyle and then the new film The Better Angels, shot by Anifex cinematographer Richard Chataway ACS.
