COVID Update: Harbour Lights screening in October at Virtual Melbourne Documentary Film Festival

28 September 2021

The Wind & Sky Productions short documentary ‘Harbour Lights’ is part of the 2021 Melbourne Documentary Film Festival online!

The festival had originally planned to have in-cinema screenings this year but due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in Victoria in July, August and September, the 2021 Melbourne Documentary Film Festival has converted to a virtual event screening online in October.

It is a lot of work behind the scenes to transfer an entire film festival to a virtual event and we send our thanks to the hard working Melbourne Documentary Film Festival team.

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 1-20th October 2021. Tickets at
