Upcoming Events for Movies that Matter
Sunday September 15th is shaping up to be a cracker Sustainable House Day in the Macedon Ranges.
Eight homes will be open in and close to the Macedon Ranges, with owners enthusiastic about sharing their experience at making their homes more comfortable, more energy efficient and cheaper to run.
There are two mudbrick houses, a strawbale house and a couple constructed from more familiar materials. There are custom builds and homes that are evolving over time, places “in town” and places on acreage, people who’ve been working on their homes for over 30 years and people who are relative rookies. What they all have is people who are passionate about making their homes work better and sharing their experiences to helping others start or continue their own improvements.
Hume Seed Library is proud to be bringing a FREE screening of 'Seed - The Untold Story' (https://www.seedthemovie.com/) at the Broadmeadows Global Learning Centre on Friday 30th August 7pm. We will have some food, home harvests, gardening supplies and seeds available to guests for a gold coin donation to help establish our Seed Library.

THE RELUCTANT RADICAL (2018) isn’t your usual documentary about climate change. This award-winning film asks a big and important question for our times: If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Is it, in fact, necessary?
Movies that Matter and MRSG’s Waste Action Group join forces to bring you a screening of this fun and inspiring Canadian documentary that poses the question: ‘Is it possible to live completely waste free?’
To mark National Threatened Species Day, MRSG and the Macedon Ranges Shire Council are screening the animated version of Dr Suess’s timeless tale. Free entry and free popcorn!
In 2018, Movies that Matter is screening films quarterly on Friday nights at the Norma Richardson Hall, 15 Buckland St, Woodend. It’s a great hall with a lovely big white wall for screening.
Entry is by donation, there will be wine and nibbles too – also by donation. Our first films for the year are about celebrating nature and biodiversity and some amazing efforts to protect it.
