    Bringing Our Stories Home is a series of six short films to commemorate the ANZAC Centenary. It explores the untold stories of the First World War, focusing specifically on the impact felt at home in Australia, and the lasting effects of the war that shaped a nation.

    Produced and directed by some of Victoria's brightest emerging filmmakers, the series offers a surprising insight into stories that were intrinsically linked to the war but were unfolding far from the battlefields.

    Combining both documentary and dramatised elements, these entertaining, revealing and moving short films explore the nature of memory, commemoration and celebration over the period of a century, and themes from food shortages to racially discriminatory soldier selection to the establishment of Luna Park.

    'Every Night's a Gala Night'

    The Phillips Brothers brought a little slice of Coney Island to Melbourne with the introduction of our very own Luna Park two years before the war began. As the war continued, the theme park played host to a series of carnivals, bringing in people by the thousands and raising substantial funds for the war effort.
