What’s On: Film festivals, live music and other events on this weekend

Try something new this weekend with yogalates, bug-tastic fun and other unique music events on around Adelaide.

Four-legged friends

The Top Dog Film Festival will be showing at the Capri Theatre on Saturday, September 18. Enjoy a heart-warming two-hour collection of independent short films from around the globe – all about dogs. Meet dogs from all walks of life on the big screen and celebrate the bond between dogs and their people through inspirational, heart-warming and entertaining stories.

Adventurous spirit

The Gusty Girls Adventure Film Tour presents a carefully curated selection of short films that will entertain, inspire and enlighten. Featuring eight unique films, covering topics relevant to women in the outdoors, these amazing stories of courage, grit, determination, and outdoor inspiration are focused on bringing the female adventure experience under the spotlight. This year’s tour is full of adventure and you can catch it at the Capri Theatre Saturday, September 18.

A night at the museum

Night Lab will return to the South Australian Museum on Friday, September 17. The award-winning late-night program is an adults-only event for ages 18+. The next iteration of Night Lab – Metamorphosis – will make you confront your fears and phobias, challenge you to try something new and learn about the secret and not-so-secret lives of insects. Join the museum for a night of transformation; think caterpillar into butterfly, grapes into wine and bugs into food for an evening of creepy, crawly, spiky, slimy, bug-tastic fun.

What’s on trend

Woolcock Reynella is extending an invitation to view their spring/summer 2021 collection fresh with colours, patterns, and designs each day until Monday, September 20 (excluding Sunday). Each parade starts at 10.30am; RSVP to book a place. For more information or to book, phone the store on 8381 2533.

Unity in diversity

Purchase your tickets now for Cultural Night at Latvian Hall on Saturday, September 18. Adelaide is a thriving city with a rich diversity of cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious backgrounds. Cultural Night is the signature event for the Adelaide University Rotaract Club, having now become South Australia’s largest youth-led multicultural festival. The event celebrates “Unity in Diversity” with a colourful celebration of multiculturalism featuring performances, food, language, traditions, customs, costumes and music while raising funds for a local South Australian charity, No Barriers Education Foundation.

That’s a stretch

Starting at 8am in the Secret Garden of the Marion Hotel, get ready to stretch through a ‘yogalates’ class (a hybrid of Pilates and yoga) before enjoying a laidback brunch of mouth-watering brekkie selections and freshly squeezed juice. Grab the girls for Sunday, September 19 and stretch to your heart’s content before brunching, munching, mingling your morning away. With limited spaces available, book now and secure your smashed avocado.
