Silver Screen May 30 - Tasmanian Short films

Silver Screen is a curated program of iconic and important Australian films screening every month in the comfortable theatre at 6 Washington Street in South Hobart.

With support from the City of Hobart, Wide Angle Tasmania presents these films for free to those aged 50 and over.
