Star in a micro-movie when Gold Coast Film Festival lands at Robina Town Centre

Gold Coasters will be able to get a taste of what it is like to be a movie star when the Gold Coast Film Festival rolls into Robina Town Centre this week.

From Thursday to Sunday, local movie buffs will be able to star in their very own four-second mini film, which will be shot in real time by 32 highly advanced, time-splice cameras as part of the centre’s Lights… Camera… GIF! activation.

The state-of-the-art, 360-degree photography equipment will  create an instant video GIF that shoppers will then be able to share across their social media channels.


Marketing Manager of Robina Town Centre, Mr Troy Archer, commented, “We are delighted to partner with the Gold Coast Film Festival to deliver locals a truly unique cinematic experience that uses innovative technology never before seen on the Gold Coast. We anticipate the launch of Lights… Camera… GIF! at Robina Town Centre will be a hit with our local shoppers who want to put themselves in the picture – literally!”

Lights… Camera… GIF! arrives in Centre from Thursday, 20th April for a four day period and is FREE for customers to enjoy. It will run from 11.00am – 6.00pm on 20th April, 10.00am – 5.00pm on 21st and 22nd April, and 10.00 – 4.00pm on 23rd April.

‘Doco’ fans will also relish the launch of ‘Documentary Season’ at Event Cinemas Robina, which is set to feature a collection of inspiring, moving and captivating independent films, screening from Thursday 20th April until Sunday 30th April. From Uncontained Love by award-winning Queensland cinematographer Jude Kalman; to Whiteley, a look into the private life of iconic Australian artist Brett Whiteley; Supergirl, the story of a nine-year old powerlifting phenomenon; and finally Ella, a tale of Australia’s first indigenous dancer to join the Australian Ballet, Gold Coast Film Festival has curated an incredibly diverse line up of feature films that will bring the big screen to life.
