Flicks Against Fires - Flickerfest / BMFT Double Header

2 Nights of FREE Film magic!

Dinner Plain is back open for business and ready to launch with a huge Labour Day Long Weekend. Featuring not one, but TWO iconic short film festival events, this is a double-header not to be missed.

Screening on the outdoor screen of Cobungra Platter (Dinner Plain's Ski Slope), settle in for a film experience under the stars at the rooftop of Australia. Supported by food stalls by local vendors and a Blizzard Brewery can-bar, bring your picnic blankets, bean bags and warm woolies to snuggle up for 2 nights of magic, completely FREE to come enjoy.

Bushfire Recovery Event

The January fires came as close as possible to impacting our village without burning a single building. This was an incredible outcome, but the evacuation meant all of our businesses have suffered their worst summer in memory. This autumn we are asking our loyal visitors to #comebacktoDP and help support our bushfire recovery.

We'll host the entertainment, all we ask is you come and stay the night (or 3) and visit our wonderful establishments during your stay!


Screening 8:15pm Cobungra Platter (Ski Slope)

Flickerfest is Australia’s only Academy® Qualifying and BAFTA-Recognised Short Film Festival, and the country’s largest Australian & International short film competition, screening the best of shorts from Australia and around the world, hand-picked from 3,500 entries. Dinner Plain is set to screen their Best of Australian Short Film program where the cream of Australian short film excellence will be front and centre.


Screening 8:15pm Cobungra Platter (Ski Slope)

The Bright Mountain Film Tour (BMFT) is a celebration of mountain culture and those who embrace it. The films are handpicked by a panel of local enthusiasts, all experts in their related fields of filmmaking, mountain sports and tourism. BMFT was forced to cancel the last night of their tour (yep, those fires!) and Dinner Plain is thrilled to hosting a completely FREE encore performance for all who missed out!

Kids Activities

Films for the Flickerfest main event are rated for children under 15 to be accompanied by an adult, whilst the Bright Mountain Film Tour is for all ages. Films on both nights have been deemed appropriate for families but keep in mind the films have been made with adults in mind. On Sunday there will be Jumping Castles, pump track rides and more at the playground area to keep the fun going all weekend.


DP MTB Park Party Rides

Have you ridden Dinner Plain's 26km MTB trail network yet? Well now is your chance! DP Riders will be hosting tunes and Blizzard Brewing Company brews at the Scrubbers End trailhead all weekend long. Come have a chat with the crew and get the inside word on the trails. There are rides suitable for all abilities from Green chargers up to the technical Black die-hards.

Head downhill from the ski slope to find the trailhead - see you there!
