Films show lighter side of town
THREE popular documentary films about the humorous side of life in Murwillumbah being shown tonight will benefit the local Riding for Disabled Association.
Taylor Made, Banana Business and Swamp Beer will be shown at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre from 6.30pm.
Tickets, at $10 each, are available at the door.
Local comedian Eve Wheeler is sure to have the audience in stitches in between film showings.
Tonight is the fifth and final local screening of the Taylor Made film about popular Murwillumbah businessman and champion of charity fundraising, Phil Taylor.
The film by documentary maker David Batty about "bananas, family and the wonderful world of cars" stars his cousin, Mr Taylor.
At previous screenings, the film raised thousands of dollars for local charities including Rotary and Lions.
Swamp Beer , depicting the light side of the aftermath when a fully-laden beer truck crashed into the Tweed River at Murwillumbah some years ago and the salvaging efforts of some thirsty locals, won a Tropfest short-film award.
Banana Business takes a look at the tribulations of Banana Festival Queen candidates.
