July is Documentary Month: Harbour Lights at Melbourne Documentary Film Festival 2021
Wind & Sky’s short documentary ‘Harbour Lights’ is part of the 2021 Melbourne Documentary Film Festival (MDFF) screening at the Cinema Nova Carlton and virtually in July.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 Lockdowns in Victoria in July, August and September 2021, the in-cinema screening was cancelled and the festival went online in October.
The film tells the story of the iconic Melbourne building the Mission to Seafarers and the pioneering network of women called the Ladies Harbour Lights Guild who supported sailors who risked their lives at sea.
Harbour Lights has been nominated by Documentary Drive as one of 2021’s shorts to watch at MDFF. They say, ‘Melbourne history buffs will want to check out this superb look at the Ladies Harbour Lights Guild and its unique role in Melbourne’s maritime history. The archive footage and interviews make this a truly special film.’
Screening times: virtual festival 1-31st July 2021, in-cinema screening Sunday 25th July.
