Schools & Teachers

We're re-opening early 2021

Term 1 bookings are open for student visits and teacher previews of the new ACMI and our centrepiece exhibition, The Story of the Moving Image.

As we settle into our rejuvenated building, we will increase our onsite offer. You can expect new workshops, cinema programs and talks, as well as increased opportunities to bring your class in to see our new exhibition.

Term 2 bookings will open on on March 15 2021.

Terms 3 & 4 bookings will open on May 3 2021.

We are grateful for the generous support of philanthropic partner Gandel Philanthropy, and acknowledge the support of the Department of Education and Training, Victoria, through the Strategic Partnerships Program.
