Don't miss the 'classics' of the future!

For this monthly program, ACMI casts its vote for the films we think represent the best in current filmmaking from around the globe.

What makes a classic film? Is it the calibre of a director, the magnetic screen presence of a star, the breaking of an unknown talent, the social context in which a film is created, a resounding audience response, or an elusive combination of the above?

Each year thousands of films are produced, with only a portion making it to our local screens. Head to ACMI for Future Classics so that in a decade you can say you saw it before everyone else!

Full $13
Concession $10
