Culture & Film Night Fundraiser for Children in Nepal
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award NT in partnership with The Australian Himalayan Foundation (AHF) & The Nepalese Association of the NT (NANT) presents a fantastic cultural delight in support of Nepalese children, on Wednesday August 13, 6:30pm at the Deckchair Cinema. The feature movie "Sir Edmund Hillary - Beyond Everest" is by award-winning documentary maker & Australia's first ever Duke of Ed Gold Awardee, Michael Dillon AM. The film is on the life of Sir Edmund Hillary, a 20th century explorer and mountaineer who rose to fame as the first man to reach the peak of Mt. Everest along with fellow climber Tenzing Norgay in 1953, and his ongoing humanitarian work with the Sherpa people of Everest - work that continues on to this day. Michael Dillon AM has made five adventure documentaries with Sir Edmund Hillary and his most recent, "Sir Edmund Hillary - Beyond Everest" has won five international awards.
A once in a lifetime opportunity, Michael Dillon AM will also be in attendance on the night to present the movie, and hold a special question and answer session with the public after the screening of his film! Other exciting entertainment includes vivid cultural displays of Nepalese dancing and music by the Nepalese Association of the NT, delicious food on sale, special prizes and lots more FUN!
