Tweed on Film features objects, movie props, behind the scenes photographs, and film clips from TV and movies that have been made in the Tweed, are about the Tweed or involve local people who work in the industry.

The exhibition features the wedding dress worn by the character Muriel (played by Toni Collette) in the film Muriel's Wedding (released in 1994), on loan from the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia; props donated to the Museum in 2016 from the set of Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales; and much more.

The Tweed is a popular film location. Alongside film props is content telling the story of productions that have used the Tweed as a film location and films about local people, places and events. Documentaries featuring local identities and events such as Banana Business, Taylor Made, Murwillumbah Swamp Beer and other favourites are also included in the exhibition.

A series of special workshops and events accompany Tweed on Film. See our website for more details.
