Crikey! Join us for a fun family film night with your favourite gang of Aussie animals.

Screening on ABC iView, Blinky Bill the Movie offers a new take on a classic tale, as the mischievous koala sets out on a journey across Australia to find his father. Log on to ABC iView at 5pm on Friday 17 September and celebrate the end of term in an across-Australia watch party.

We've put together some movie-focused info and some craft and snack suggestions to make your at-home viewing a lot more fun.

The ACMI Education team will be tweeting family friendly quiz questions and trivia. Share pictures on Twitter of your Blinky Bill-inspired snacks and your pets joining you for some animated viewing.
