A community project has been documenting the stories of locals and the legends of Lake Illawarra and the results will soon be screened for the public to see and enjoy.
The Lake Illawarra MAP (memory and place) film festival will open on Monday at the Gala cinema. The event will showcase a series of short video pieces telling the different stories of members of the community and their links to Lake Illawarra.
Phillip Crawford took the time to explain the origins of this project and share the story of how the project has come together.
More information can be found on the Festival website.
