Australian Film History Game

This is what I am going to give my yr 11s tomorrow. I thought I would put it up here in case anyone wanted to play. I will be printing these film titles and events on large bits of paper and getting them to arrange them on the white board (with the aid of bluetac) in the order they think the were released/occurred.

The use of google, wikipedia or anyother search technology is prohibited, and if I catch you using anything cheaty I will confiscate your computer/pad/phone/thingy.

Film titles are in Goodluck!
