SOLID SCREEN Festival presents work by Indigenous Women ScreenMakers and acknowledges historically important screen culture. 

2016 SOLID SCREEN Festival Australasia Pacific took place at the Tallebudgera on the Gold Coast in South East Queensland, Australia.

This event is a gift to the community so all women, men and children were welcome to attend this free screening and performance night. 

The event kicked off on the southern shore of Tallebudgera Creek with Sunset Performances by Yoyo Tuki and also the Arakwal Dubay Dancers who then lead the viewers into the screening.

The Arakwal Dubay Dancers are a dance troupe that practice and perform traditional dance. They often perform at gatherings and key regional events including NAIDOC week, The Blues Festival and Splendor In The Grass. Each dance has significance and meaning. For example, the welcome dance is about sweeping out the bad spirits and bringing in the good.

Yoyo Tuki is a musician, artist and devoted culture man from the Pacific Island nation of Rapa Nui (Easter Island).  An acclaimed musical figure throughout Polynesia, Chile and Australia. Born into a culturally rich family, Yoyo developed a strong sense of identity. A deep respect for his land and traditions was nurtured by his upbringing, and in particular by the influence of his grandfather ‘Mana Roa’ (Great Wisdom). A highly respected elder, Mana Roa was regarded as a keeper of ancient wisdom, and was also one of the island’s greatest carvers. His cultural knowledge was legendary. As a child, Yoyo would listen to his grandfather’s stories, knowing that the day would come where he passed this wisdom to his own children. What he couldn’t have known then, was that his music would one day transmit a deep cultural message to thousands of his own people, and many more throughout the world.

  1. These guys are absolutely amazing, and you'd be crazy to party anywhere else in the city. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It's elegant, affordable, and delicious. You really get bang for your buck at event space San Francisco! And the service is top-notch.
