This project is a collaboration between the Ballarat RSL, Federation University Australia, the Ballarat Gold Museum, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka and Wind & Sky Productions.
The Memories of War Film and Research Project is funded by the Australian Government Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program and the Victorian Government Anzac Centenary Major Grants Program.
The Memories of War project commemorates the centenary of WW1 in Ballarat and connects young people today to events that took place a hundred years ago. Student researchers from Federation University Australia will discover and tell the stories of Ballarat people affected by the Great War. They will share their stories on the Ballarat Gold Museum Blog and in a series of local events held in 2015. A documentary film based on the research findings will be produced by Wind & Sky productions in 2015 and screened at a dedicated event at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka, Ballarat.
Student contributions will be undertaken between April and July 2015
Film production will be underway from June to October 2015
Film Screening: Nov. 8, 2015
Screening of the completed documentary will take place at MADE Ballarat on Sunday 8 November 2015
