ANZAC Day will be commemorated tomorrow (April 25) throughout Australia and New Zealand and by ex-pats around the world who will remember those who went to fight for the freedom of both countries. If you haven't been to a service in a while or are visiting Australia and are keen to learn more about this important date why not head along to one of the several services taking place across the Gold Coast. Whether you are an early riser and can make a pre-5am service or prefer a mid-morning affair, there are options for all.

Jetboat Extreme will open from midday on ANZAC Day - so if you and your family, friends or flatties are looking for a way to kill a couple of hours on your day off - come down and see us - we would love to see you!

Organisers of the 10th annual Gold Coast Film Festival have managed to secure Harry Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps who play Fred and George Weasley in the internationally popular series to attend the festival. Almost six months after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 hit the big screen, fans on the Gold Coast will get the chance to see an encore screening of the final installment of the series introduced by two of the stars. The film screens at Birch Carroll & Coyle Australia Fair Cinemas in Southport on Saturday 21 April at 8.30pm. Fans are encouraged to dress in Harry Potter costume to celebrate the film and be in with a chance to win a prize for Best Costume. Tickets are $12 and can be bought under the Australia Fair session times at www.eventcinemas.com.au. The Gold Coast Film Festival got underway on April 19 and runs until April 29 - the festival aims to celebrate the local industry and includes a wide range of films screening daily at Birch Carroll and Coyle Australia Fair Cinemas, free outdoor cinema events and seminars and workshops. Check out some of the homegrown talent on show - there's plenty of Australian productions on the programme!
