This is the Full Monty for the Footy field.

“The script deftly balances the comedy with the drama … – this is the Full Monty for the Footy field.” says Alex Lines of in his festival report of THE MERGER when the movie was competing at CinefestOz 2018.

Just one more week to go, then it’s ELFS time again at Alte Gerberei – reserve your couch, get a drink at the bar and don’t forget to be early:  yes, John from Platform 2 will give us a solo concert before the film.

A Small Australian Film with a Big Heart

A Small Australian Film with a Big Heart

Dear Film Fans,

our next film will be a comedy from Australia – about saving The Roosters, a football club,  from being merged and losing their name (and thus their identity) by rather unconventional means.


Save 21st November in your calendar and look forward to a cosy film night at Alte Gerberei.

Watch the trailer with us here, and block November 22nd on your calendar.


The Merger … goes from laugh-aloud comedy to tear-welling empathy.

“It goes from laugh-aloud comedy to tear-welling empathy.” says David Edwards of The Blurb in his online review of our next film THE MERGER.

Despite its name, the film hasn’t got any commercial subject matter. It’s a comedy about rescuing a football club by unusual means … And it’s a VERY Aussie movie.


THE MERGER *** Thursday 21st November *** 8 pm *** Alte Gerberei


ELFs November film

Why is our November film special? It is an Aussie film; not easy to get licences for films from Down Under here in Austria.

But this time we made it: THE MERGER is a comedy about football and integration; and a comedy quite suits the grim month of November, doesn’t it?

*** THE MERGER *** Thursday, November 21st *** 8 pm *** Alte Gerberei ***

Details will be published soon!
