The fires have taken more than 11,000 hectares of our regions’ land but they can’t take our Capricorn spirit. 


 
 To celebrate the courage, resilience, compassion and tenacity of our emergency services and those affected by fire in and around Yeppoon, Capricorn Film Festival would like to say thank you and also offer some relief.
 
“We want anyone who’s been affected by the fires to come and enjoy one of the five feature films and documentaries at the Yeppoon Town Hall, on us”, said Festival Director Luke Graham.
 
“From the opening night film Bellbird, to the documentary screening of Aussie icon, Tommy Emmanuel’s life, it’s an exciting four days of national and international film premiere’s for them to enjoy. Who knows you might even get a chance to speak to the Capricorn Film Festival’s Patron, Australian stage and film star Michael Caton.”
 
There are also free outdoor screenings to enjoy.
 
“Don’t forget the we have two FREE outdoor screenings at the Yeppoon Beachfront Amphitheatre. On Friday night, Happy Sad Man, will screen exploring mental health and on Saturday, our closing night, CAPS Outdoor Short Film Festival will be a relaxing and enjoyable night out for all,” he said.
 
Coordinator, Peter Szilveszter said they’re looking forward to seeing everyone.
  
“We hope that all of those affected by the devastating fires can enjoy a relaxing night out, side by side with the community who’ve been their supporting them every step of the way,” Peter said.
