Good Lives on Film

Film-making experience for people in their 60s, 70s, and beyond.

Good Lives on Film first screened at the Mercury Cinema in Adelaide, South Australia on 17 February 2015. Seven film-makers saw their vision of what it means to have a good life as you get older, shown on the big screen to an enthusiastic crowd.

These films were produced to form part of the resource kit for the Australian Government funded initiative called the Exchange, to support older people and their peers to live good lives.

Since then, two more film series have been produced – scroll down to see all the films produced over the three series.

Series 1

Featured stories about the give and take of volunteering; bouncing back after injury; the importance of a hobby; the joy of singing; the love of pets and the trials and triumphs of migrating to a new land.

Series 2

Four films produced by ten amateur filmmakers covered stories of grief and loss, learning to dance and learning to play an instrument at a later age, making a new life in a new country, and what makes a good life in retirement.

Happy Birthday Lottie!

Lottie, a Labrador is owned by ViTA's Registered Nurse Tracey, who brings her to work each day. Lottie has been bringing smiles to all at ACH Group's ViTA residential care home since she was just 8 weeks old. To celebrate her first birthday, residents threw her a party.

Residents laugh that she is the most spoilt dog in Adelaide with the endless adoration that is given to her by them each day.
