SPAT Film Society
SPAT Film Society is a group within SPAT which screens four or five films each calendar year. You will be given plenty of notice of our screening dates by email. In addition we always publish the screening dates on our website as well as erecting street signs in the local area.
We aim to show a wide range of films showcasing the best of Australian and international movies. We also include foreign language screenings. We also welcome ideas and suggestions from our members – email us your suggestions and if it is available for film society screenings we will included it in our program.
Our movies are screened in the CWA Hall, 15 The Drive, Stanwell Park. Doors open at 7pm and the screening begin at 7.30pm.
We gratefully acknowledge The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) for funding for our new high quality video projector. We appreciate the support of ANSTO.
SPAT Acting Workshops
During the year we provide both adult and young people’s acting workshops. Perhaps you want to hone your acting skills, or find that ‘inner thespian’ while having heaps of fun? Then this is for you.
The workshops will focus on a range of stage craft skills:
Release – Physical, Vocal and Emotional: How to relax on stage and access the full potential of your voice, your body and you feelings.
The Mechanics of Drama – Objectives, Obstacles, Stakes and Beats: How to make sense of a scene and get the most out of it.
Creating a World – What’s, Where’s, and Why’s: Techniques for a creating a rich imaginative world for you to inhabit on stage.
The tone of the workshops will be playful, encouraging and focused – we’ll create a space that allows people to make some real breakthroughs! Class sizes will be limited so don’t miss out.
SPAT Singers are a mixed voice singers who perform under the musical direction of Rod Lander. The group is essentially a group of like-minded people who simply enjoy the fun and social experience of raising their voices together in song.
If you resonate with any of the quotes below or they bring a smile to your face perhaps you should come along and join in as we make music. The group’s repertoire is varied and exciting. Suggestions for new songs are always welcome.

“Those who wish to sing always find a song.” – Swedish Proverb
“He who sings scares away his woes.” ― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
“I only sing in the shower. I would join a choir, but I don’t think my bathtub can hold that many people.
