Ms Byles suiccessfully campaigned for the establishment of the Bouddi National Park.
The 1985 film was written, produced, and directed by Gillian Coote.
Ms Coote will be at the event to talk about Ms Byles, the film and answer questions.
The second film, Peninsula Paradise, tells the story of the Woy Woy Peninsula from 1936 op to 2016.
It is the work by local film-makers Ms Vivien Sale and Mr Noel Sandler.
Inspired by a 1936 black and white film, Woy Woy: The Venice of Australia, Peninsula Paradise brings the 1930s work up to date.
Ms Sales will talk about the film.
Many photographs from the historical collection, Bouddi Photographs Past and Present, will be shown to begin the program and during the interval.
