Movie lunch resources

Use these resources to help you plan a film screening event. These resources have been provided by the Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group.

Our Vision

An inclusive workplace built on mutual respect, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities and cultures are recognised, valued and celebrated.

Reconciliation Film Club

Hosting a screening of a Reconciliation Film Club documentary is an opportunity to bring people together to develop a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, histories and cultures, to ignite conversation and spark change. It’s also a great platform to engage staff actively with our RAP plan.

Movies for your event

Preview the Reconciliation Film Club movies.

There are four films to choose from as part of the Reconciliation Film Club:

  • We don’t need a map
  • Connection to Country
  • Occupation Native
  • In My Own Words.

A screening pack is provided with each film which is handy to read. Check out the Connection to Country pack.

As part of this pack there are questions you can ask to stimulate discussion about the movie afterwards if you have time.

The RAP Working Group hosted the Connection to Country movie over lunch in the William Wilkins Rooms at Phillip Street over lunch. We did an Acknowledgment of Country and provided popcorn.
