January 29, 2021 in News, What's on in Clyde

Welcome to February!

With a blink of an eye, January is over and February has snuck up behind us, meaning that we have one more month to indulge the summer weather.

And, as we all know, there is nothing like summer in Melbourne. With an endless amount of things to see and do, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

Whether you are into watching the pros go head-to-head at the tennis, grooving at a live music event, indulging in some delicious cuisine, spending your mornings at the markets, or simply getting outdoors, here are our best picks around our fantastic community for the month for all the family to enjoy.

Finally, the Eliston team would like to wish all those who celebrate a very happy Chinese New Year.

We hope you have a fantastic month ahead!

 

MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL – H IS FOR HAPPINESS SCREENING

When: From 5:00PM, Friday, February 5th 2021 – Movie screens at 6:30PM

Where: Bunjil Place, 2 Patrick North East Drive, Narre Warren

Cost: $10 including your choice of choc top, popcorn or glass of champagne, wine or beer

Soak up the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) experience in the Plaza as they showcase four feature film events this February starting with H Is For Happiness.

Enjoy a selection of shorts especially curated my MIFF programmers for the younger audiences from 5.00 pm before the feature film kicks off at 6.30 pm sharp.

H- is for Happiness is the story of Candice, a relentlessly optimistic and hilariously forthright girl on the cusp of her 13th birthday. Candice’s family is in disarray: her mum has been living with depression since the death of Candice’s baby sister, while her dad and his brother – Candice’s beloved Rich Uncle Brian – are not on speaking terms. As she faces the uncertainties of impending adolescence with the help of her new friend Douglas, Candice hatches a variety of outlandish schemes to make her nearest and dearest happy again. John Sheedy, director of the MIFF 2017 Best Australian Short Film Mrs McCutcheon, makes his feature debut with this sunny and buoyant coming-of-age tale.

A beautiful film for the whole family to enjoy.
