Unravelling the past THE Bendigo Historical Society, in lieu of a museum, is currently presenting an exhibition at the Bendigo Library.

NEXT weekend Castlemaine documentary film festival roadshow rides into Bendigo with a free screening of Dark Horse on Sunday, June 24. The festival’s Denise Button has powerful view on the power of documentary films. “You’re sitting in the cinema watching a fascinating on-screen character in an equally fascinating world, and then you are hit with a scene that leaves you speechless,” she said. “Like any good film, its emotional power comes from that character and their story – but the biggest reason you are so moved and transfixed is because you know what you are watching is real.

“Yes, what you are witnessing really happened, and that person and place exists in a world you may otherwise never have known about.” Ms Button said that’s the experience of documentary film. “In an increasingly virtual world, the authenticity of documentaries means they are becoming more popular than ever,” she said. In an effort to introduce a wider audience to the extraordinary situations and people captured in featurelength non-fiction films, the Castlemaine Documentary Film Festival is taking to the road. “CDOC will present

free screenings of the heartwarming family-friendly film, Dark Horse,” Ms Button said. “It’s an inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men’s club who decide to take on the elite sport of kings and breed themselves a racehorse.” Replicating the CDOC experience, the film will be followed by a Skype question and answer session hosted by dual Emmy-Award winning CDOC festival director Geoffrey Smith, in conversation with the film’s director, Louise Osmond. To reserve your place at a free screening, register online at www.trybooking.com/VJFH. For further details visit www. cdocff.com.au
