BUILDING THE FREO FALLS DOWNTOWN FESTIVAL

Work has started on erecting the stages, lights and sound system at Fremantle Oval for this weekend’s Falls Downtown festival, which will bring two days of great music to our port city, and hopefully a lot of business for our local traders.

I don’t want to sound like a patronising out-of-touch old fool, but please stay away from drugs as far too many young people have died from them during festivals recently!

PANTS DOWN FOR SEXUAL RESEARCH AT FREO’S FALLS DOWNTOWN

Falls festival

 

Visitors to next year’s Fremantle Falls Downtown festival will be offered high-class toilets, if they agree to take a test for sexually transmitted infections.

The WA State Government is offering the free test because of a significant increase in cases of chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

More that 16,000 young people are expected to come to Freo for the two-day festival on January 5 and 6, so the State Government wanted to target the 16-24 year-old, which is the group with the highest reports of chlamydia.

The Department of Health is sponsoring the Falls Festival with $ 50,000.

GEORGE STREET FESTIVAL VERY POPULAR

Posted in city of fremantle, east fremantle, festival, Uncategorized by freoview on November 25, 2018

 

 

The East Fremantle GEORGE STREET FESTIVAL is as popular as ever, as one could witness this afternoon. A huge number of people turned up for the annual festival in the lovely street.

There were lots of dogs and kids, plenty of food stalls, art&craft, stuff, bars, live music and entertainment, and parking in the precinct was at a premium.

HAVE A FUN SUNDAY IN FREO!

 

The forecast for this Sunday is scattered showers but that should not deter us Freo lovers from having a great day in the community.

Start is oft as always with the Growers Green Farmers Market, from 8am till midday at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road.

Then move your sublime self to East Fremantle for the George Street Festival which starts at 11am and finishes at sunset.

And while in the area have a break in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard from2-4pm for the free Sunday music session with Web Rumors and Segue.

Em Burrows returns to the FAC with a six piece band, so expect sweeping synths, haunting sax and Em’s contralto voice.

The music feast starts of with pop duo Segue, so it will be an afternoon of experimental pop.

THE OTHER FILM FESTIVAL AT DADAA FREMANTLE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, disability, festival, movies, Uncategorized by freoview on September 25, 2018

 

A deaf mugger takes along his sign interpreter if he wants his victims to understand that they are being mugged. A woman with a prosthetic leg loves shoe shopping. A dog relays the experience of involuntary admission to a public psychiatric ward.

These are some of the compelling stories from around the world that will feature in The Other Film Festival in Fremantle in October. DADAA has teamed up with Arts Access Victoria to bring The Other Film Festival to Western Australia for the first time.

A trailblazing event that features film, presentations and industry panels by, with and about people with disability, this festival has screened powerful and provocative Australian and international films in a fully accessible program since 2004.

DADAA will present The Other Film Festival in the recently renovated cinema at the DADAA Fremantle Hub (Old Boys’ School) on 6 & 7 October.

Along with the curated program of films from the Melbourne festival, DADAA is proud to present the inaugural Act-Belong-Commit WA Stories showcase of the best WA short films made by DADAA artists.

DADAA arts partner Screenwest will present two engaging panels in the festival to discuss and debate aspects of disability screen culture, with leading representatives from the film sector.

The Other Film Festival is changing how the community thinks about disability. The accessible program features audio-description, captioning and Auslan interpretation – and it’s all free to the public! The WA tour of The Other Film Festival is supported by Act-Belong-Commit with Screenwest presenting the panel sessions.

Tickets are free but bookings at Eventbrite please!
