Cafs is celebrating Refugee Week 2022 alongside Ballarat’s Latin/Hispanic community, A Pot of Courage and the Ballarat Regional Multicultural Council!

You’re invited to the Ballarat Premiere screening of - Nuestras Voces (Our Voices) – a free screening at the Barkly Square (25-39 Barkly St) theatre space.  Friday June 24th @7pm.

Proudly sponsored by Cafs, we are very happy to be supporting local film maker Diana Paez for the Ballarat premiere of her first feature length documentary film.

Diana’s film featured in Melbourne’s Moro Spanish Film Festival, and has since toured other film festivals, and picked up two awards (Toronto Women’s Film Festival 2021 & Latino “Feedback” festival 2021).

Nuestras Voces brings us stories of migrants and refugees from Spanish-speaking communities who arrived in Melbourne between the 1960s through to the 1980s. With personal stories and experiences, the film explores the challenges of settling into a different society, the fight against racism, the search for a foundation of their own cultural identity in Australia, and more.

For a sneak peek, here is the YouTube link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hwx23BDifk&t=1s

A Pot of Courage will have the paella pan set up between 6 & 7pm with two offerings:

  • Chicken and chorizo paella $20 per serve
  • Vegan paella $18 per serve

Dessert taster boxes are also available for the film @ $13 each.
