In the second of three weekends featuring Australian film, the Redland Performing Arts Centre focusses on man’s four-legged best friend, with screenings of the movies Oddball and Red Dog on August 11.
These uplifting movies celebrate the Aussie dog and make for the perfect day out for families and dog-lovers alike.
The hilarious and heart-warming Oddball offers screenings at 10am (non-captioned) and noon (captioned). This is based on the true story of an eccentric chicken farmer who, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his dog Oddball to protect a wild penguin sanctuary from fox attacks and in the process tries to reunite his family. It stars Shane Jacobson and Deborah Mailman. Rated G, the film runs for 95 minutes.
Red Dog is based on the true story of the red dog who roamed the Australian outback in search of his long-lost master. In the process, this loveable dog finds his way into the hearts of everyone he meets, bringing people and a disparate local community together; some who find love, and others who find themselves. Starring Josh Lucas and Rachael Taylor, this film runs for 92 minutes and is rated PG. Screenings are at 2pm (non-captioned) and 4pm (captioned).
Films being shown at RPAC are designed to inspire, inform and engage audiences through Australian storytelling. Tickets are $8 for a single film or $14 for two films on the same day.
