Night Owls Kids Film Festival

Your favourite summer activation is coming back to the Village Green at Darling Quarter from the 6th to the 25th of January 2017. 

This summer, find happiness on a tiny patch of land in the middle of the big city, in the glow of the silver screen.

Night Owls is back for its sixth year, so gather family and friends and swap a night on the couch for an adventure under the stars at the Village Green North at Darling Quarter.

There’s 17 nights of fun on offer, with kids’ entertainment from 6pm to 6:30pm each night, short films from Little Big Shots screening at 6:30pm, a family feature film from 6:45pm, and after-hours films for the big kids from 8:30pm on dedicated nights.

There are also some great prizes to be won, with nightly T-shirt giveaways, plus the chance to experience an outdoor cinema any time you feel like it in the privacy of your own backyard, with a My Outdoor Theatre package valued at $1,499 up for grabs!

The best part is that all the fun of the Night Owls Film Fest is free!

Bring your picnic basket and blankets and a sense of childlike wonder as you soak up Sydney’s outdoor summer vibe.

A brilliant range of classic and contemporary films will be screened, including Bridge To Terabithia, Snoopy & Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie, The Jungle Book, and Zootopia, to name a few.
