In honour of National Reconciliation Week, the NFSA is screening Sweet As – an uplifting, coming-of-age story about an Indigenous teenager who receives an unusual lifeline in the form of an outback photo safari. Inspired by a true story, stay after the screening for a special Q&A with actors Shantae Barnes-Cowan and Carlos Sanson Jr.
Comprised entirely from hundreds of film samples and media images, Hello Dankness is a horror musical retelling of contemporary America. It is created by Soda Jerk, an artist duo fundamentally interested in the politics of images. Come along for a unique experience!
Join us for the fright night cult classic, The Lost Boys. Hosted by drag professional Venus Mantrap, this film is the perfect amalgamation of 80s cool and cheesy fun – after all, sleeping all day, partying all night, and never getting old? That’s the fun of being a vampire.
This month, we highlight the Australian independent filmmaking scene with a screening of Alvin’s Harmonious World of Opposites. Stay for the Q&A with director Platon Theodoris and lead actor Teik-Kim Pok.
