The scheduled second evening the Woollamia International Film Festival summer season last Saturday had to be postponed due to the inclement weather.
The Funknuckle, based in Jervis Bay, present what they jokingly refer to as the Woollamia International Film Festival (WIFF - there's something in the air, and it ain't smoke).
Although the rain, after all these terrible bush fires, was appreciated unfortunately it's not great for an outdoor flick.
The screening of scheduled cult movie The Cars That Ate Paris directed by Peter Weir (1974) will now be held on Saturday, February 22.
Again all funds raised by its screenings to the Shoalhaven Mayoral Relief Fund for Bushfire Relief and Wildlife Rescue South Coast.
This community event takes place in a bush setting with open air screenings of off-beat or classic films on a large, cinema-sized screen with surround sound.
The iconic Australian movie The Cars That Ate Paris directed by Peter Weir was a precursor to the Mad Max films, the award for the craziest Australian automobile movie definitely belongs to The Cars That Ate Paris (released in the US as The Cars That Eat People).
The first feature from veteran director Peter Weir belongs to a pantheon of films focused on poor unfortunates stuck in scary outback towns (think Wake in Fright) where dark things happen, particularly at night.
This first effort from acclaimed writer/director Peter Weir is set in the secluded rural town of Paris, Australia, where the chief source of income is provided by the orchestration of automobile accidents - which frequently claim the lives of passing tourists.
Those who survive are subjected to bizarre brain experiments by a loony local surgeon.
One such unfortunate survivor is young Arthur, who remains in Paris after his recovery to work in the hospital, unaware (at first) of the circumstances which brought him there.
Shorts in keeping with the theme of the night will also be shown.
The screening is at 560 Woollamia Road, Woollamia. Doors open at 6.15pm, screening from 8.15pm. BYO picnic, swimming gear, chairs and mozzie protection. Donation: $15
