As our monthly go-to for all things cultural, Buro culturemaker Noelle Faulkner rounds up the best things to do, see and hear for the month of June, one day at a time
As I type this, there is a fair chance I'm dying of frostbite. My apartment does not do winter well and, to be honest, unless I'm surrounded by cold, white powder, schnapps, and high altitude giddiness, neither do I. This close to sea level and I'm working at a half-pace, struggling to find clothes to wear that aren't fleece-lined, and most of all, making excuses not to crawl out from a heated throw blanket (yes, it's a thing). Which is easy, because I feel like everyone else is doing the same.
Early June is when Jack Frost makes his chilling debut and we all freak out. As tempting as it may be to grab the nearest hot body, lock the door and hide under a heavy layer of duck down, there is also plenty of reasons to get out of the house - I know this because I just combed through all and sundry to find thirty things to do other than Netflix and chilling your way through the Matrix trilogy.
Sydney is lucky because not only does Vivid Festival shine bright up until half way through the month, but the always-special Sydney Film Festival happens this month from the 8th and has a damn fine program of flicks (stay tuned for my SFF guide landing next week). In our most southern state, Dark Mofo will be heralding the winter solstice, while Adelaide will soon be sliding on it's dancing shoes.
Oh, and for the first time, this month also sees everyone's favourite rhino and warthog duo, Bebop and Rocksteady, in their first feature-length film. Have no idea what I'm on about? Peel back the covers and read on.
