We're proud to present a special premiere screening of heartfelt local drama AKONI to celebrate World Refugee Day!

This special premiere screening will feature a post-film Q&A with writer, director, producer and star Genna Chanelle Hayes, star Kit Esuruoso and renowned human rights lawyer and Australian hero, Alison Battisson.


A homeless refugee struggles to integrate into Australian society after escaping conflict in his homeland. While living on the streets and on the receiving end of racist taunts, a young woman comes to his aid. Struggling with her own feelings of grief and loneliness, she soon finds solace in her unlikely new companion as he opens her up to a world beyond modelling, parties and social media.

Will you come?
