Potterfest in Canberra

Calling all House Elves, Hinkypunks and Hogwarts alumni, the Palace Cinema is holding a Potterfest movie marathon over the October long weekend. If you feel like watching all the Harry Potter movies in 20+ hours then this is the event for you.


Replicants and RUSes and flying elephants

As a part of their Cult Classics movie series, Dendy is screening two very different ’80s classic movies.

9 May will be the day for “The Princess Bride” and rodents of unusual size and on 15 May “Blade Runner” will be screening.

While on the other side of town, Limelight is screening classic Disney animated fantasy movies starting with “Dumbo”.

Today is International Fanworks Day

February 15th is International Fanworks Day, the first annual day to celebrate fanwork of all kinds. Writing, crafting, costuming, reviewing, role playing games, photography, creativity related to fandoms, and more.

The Organisation for Transformative Works has organised the day to “celebrate all iterations of fansworks across the world”. Further details including a fanwork drabble are at http://transformativeworks.org/news/international-fanworks-day-here

What fanworks do you enjoy as a creating or consuming? What makes it special?

Game of Thrones skipping a week

For those of us following the drama of life in Westeros, Easteros and Beyond The Wall, Game of Thrones will not be on this week in the USA and Australia (and everywhere else). HBO is skipping screening the show on Memorial Day in the USA,¬†which apparently wasn’t a good evening for ratings last year.

As we’ve been deprived of some new episodes, why not tell us which episode or scene was your favourite.
