It is a fun and rewarding experience, take it from me I caught the bug over 5 years ago now and have never looked back.
Watching a film alone can be a deeply emotional experience. Watching a film together the experience is shared and in many ways more meaningful. As a group who watch a film together we now have this shared experience in common. Through this common ground we can develop strong bonds and friendships which may carry us through our lives

Abandoning city life, Robyn arrives in Alice Springs and declares her ambition to cross 2,000km of desert to the Indian Ocean, much to the amusement of the locals. However after months of camping out and working on a camel farm people begin to take her seriously. A chance meeting with National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan provides her with the necessary financing for her expedition under the condition that he be allowed to photograph parts of her journey for the magazine. With only her dog and four unpredictable camels for company, she embarks on an inspiring and life changing journey of self discovery.
