Muriel’s Wedding is 20 years old in 2014 so we’re sharing rare videos, costumes, oral history, posters, photographs, artefacts and documents from the NFSA collection to commemorate the occasion.

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of an Australian icon with behind-the-scenes photographs of the Oscar-winning costumes from The Adventure of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Watch interviews with costume designer Tim Chappel, and see posters, photographs and production documents from the NFSA collection.
