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.

What's been your favourite moment of the Tokyo Olympics so far? Share in the comments below 👇

ACH Group customer Chris has shared his!

"Australia's soccer team the Olyroos had a great first round win against Argentina, winning 2-0. It was not expected, they played very well," Chris said.

"The female swimmers who have won Gold - you need to put those moments at the top, and the swim that South Australian Kyle Chalmers had in the freestyle relay was incredible. He went into the last turn in about fifth place and brought it home in the last lap to win the Bronze. I think if he had another 50m to swim, he would have won the race.

"I have also enjoyed watching the Hockeyroos - I do enjoy team games, over individual sport."
