Charters Towers – Celebrating 150 Years in 2022

Part of the 150 year celebrations, Council will be producing a documentary created by the people of Charters Towers.  As part of the film, Council is calling on residents to grab their cameras and film themselves to capture the lives of people in 2022.

The hour-long film, titled ‘Our World’, will include interviews of prominent residents and the stories made by the community.  The final film will premiere at the Twilight Markets and Film Festival on 30 September 2022.

The aim of the film is to highlight Charters Towers and the community.  Community members are encouraged to capture their day-to-day life and share their thoughts and feelings.
