Stories of the Screen: Talk

Onsite talk

Join us on a journey through moving image history

Be inspired by the creativity and innovation behind the screen stories and technologies that are such an important part of our lives.

In this interactive talk, we focus on the development of film, the arrival of TV and the very first videogames.

Follow-up curriculum-focused activities encourage learners to make further discoveries around the past, present and future of the moving image.

This talk takes place onsite at ACMI, and includes a visit to our new exhibition The Story of the Moving Image.
