Healesville Mini Film Festival 2023

There will be opportunities to donate during the day and to purchase tickets in our ‘Taste of The Yarra Valley’ raffle to be drawn at the end of the day. All fundraising proceeds will go to the Association of Ukrainians Victoria. Eftpos and cash payment available.
