A festival of blood, screams and all things gore. How lovely! Kicking off last Thursday, the festival program is brimming with some of the best local and international films out there, alongside a few special events. Fans of fright will be able to enjoy a mixture of contemporary and classic horror features, as well as short film screenings and workshops. There will even be a horror screenwriting forum this Thursday night, where some of the brightest filmmakers from the festival will be dishing tips on everything from writing a great horror story to getting that story on the screen. Check out the website for everything that’s happening this week – http://www.anightofhorror.com/
Love trawling through people’s garbage but hate lurking around at night to avoid angry neighbours? Well you’re in luck my friend. This weekend garages around the country will be opened up to junk collectors of all sorts as part of the national Garage Sale Trail. Wether it’s comic books, retro furniture, old records or vintage threads you’re after at one of the hundreds of garage sales already registered in Sydney. Even the City of Sydney Council is getting involved, hosting garage sales at Glebe and Surry Hills libraries as well as providing maps to the best spots in those suburbs. Find out more about what’s on sale and where here; http://www.garagesaletrail.com.au/ or just wonder the streets on Sunday until you find something rad!
