May in Dili, Districts start in July

Weekend screenings continued in and around Dili during May, managing to avoid the rain. But in the districts as the wet season dries out, Angelo and Lou are waiting for the roads to dry out before heading out to the districts in July.

This year we have screened in February through to May mostly in and around Dili which has proven very popular.

A March of Dili

The local screenings around dili in March have been a huge success, with the rain holding off each Friday and Saturday night allowing Cinema loro sa'e to screen in a different village within Dili.
In Comoro Kampu Baru several hundred locals sang along to brazilian film 2 Filhos de Francisco, while the next night in Beto a thousand locals watched the ever powerful Balibo 5.

The following weekend Korean favourite Barefoot Dream was shown in Marconi, with Balibo showing in Lurumata. Finally last weekend Africa United, the celebration of World Cup Football and the spiriit of African adventure was shown at Kampo Alor, while the following night at the Kampo football ground Balibo was watched by another large crowd.

2014 season has an early start...

The last few years we have started screenings late May once the wet season is over. But this year, we've decided to take a chance with some screenings in and around Dili during March, and like a "pop up cinema" Angelo got the first screening underway last Friday (actually Feb28!) to iron out the cobwebs. Even at short notice around 700 people came out in Becora to see Timor Leste's own homegrown film, A Guerra da Beatriz.


Then this weekend he screened A Guerra da Beatriz to several hundered people in each of Bairo Pite on Friday night and Manlewana on Saturday night.

The up coming program is below, is subject to the randomness of rain this time of year, keep your eyes and ears open for the big blow up screen!

2013 Summary

Cinema Loro sae 2013 

Angelo and Lou traversed across Timor Leste with their blow up screen and portable equipment in their Rentlo Troopy over a 17 week period. They screened to 49,000 people, on 61 nights in 55 villages. Crowds ranged from a few hundred to a few thousand each night. 

The main film shown for the year was A Guerra da Beatriz, thanks to Dili Film Works, with some screenings of Bloodshot and Balibo throughout.

At the end of its third successful year, the team is now well ingratiated with the regions and screening visits are highly anticipated.

Many thanks to our sponsors:

- Rentlo Car Hire in Dili, and especially to Kieren for his support. 

- Timor Telecom for communication sponsorship, and always having something to give away to the kids.

- Schweppes is a new sponsor, supported from their Melbourne office.

- the State Cinema in Hobart, owned by John Kelly and kindred cinema to the Sun!

- the Sun Theatre in Yarraville, Melbourne and the public of most glorious Yarraville and the Inner West.
