Solid Screen Festival cancelled

Solid Screen Festival has been running since 2014 but now cancelled until further notice.
Due to refusal of meaningful support in Queensland, Solid Screen Festival is not being held in 2020 *.
However please check out the #cyberTribe20yearsStrong project titled  h e a l :

* 2019: Queensland State Premier Anna Palaszczuk has refused to increase funding (from $4000) for the Solid Screen Festival for Indigenous Women (internationally) but has announced that she has magically found $1.6 million in the budget for Queensland to host the London-based (mainstream) Women of the World (WOW) Festival for another three years from 2020... Cultural apartheid is ugly. Wouldn't we expect more from a Woman Premier too?

Hopefully Queensland grows up soon.
Pictured in this post is a letter from the Palaszczuk Government - which they just basically cut and paste from Screen Queensland, but have failed to address the questionable issue of funding to Indigenous Screen FESTIVALS *or the LACK the…

Solid Screen at Herberton 2018

SOLID SCREEN was presented in August 2018 at Mount Saint Bernard College as part of NAIDOC celebrations and also at the Gallery Coffee Shoppe for a public screening in Herberton, on the Atherton Tableland in Far North Queensland. 

Solid Sisters Documentary > We get an insider perspective of the lives and screen work of the SOLID SISTERS as they gathered at Innot Hot Springs in Far North Queensland for a healing retreat and festival in 2014. SOLID SCREEN was set up as an effort toward the maintenance of screen arts culture from the ground up, and also to recognise and acknowledge the historically important work made by and for the screen. 2014 saw the birthing of the inaugural SOLID SCREEN gatherings. This was a very unique proposal and it provides audiences with a snapshot of the niche artform areas of experimental screen practice and storytelling by Indigenous Women Internationally.
