See below for additional related events

Celebrate cinema at a reasonable hour with our thoughtfully curated line-up of films from Australia and around the world.

Join us in the cinema on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for our popular program of films spanning narrative features, documentaries and classics with new films every fortnight.

This Winter we launch our program with Fellini favourite La Strada which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. From there we embark on a season including Monster by Hirokazu Koreeda which features the final film score by composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. This sits alongside Academy Award-nominated The Teachers’ Lounge, MIFF’s Bright Horizons Award-winner Banel & Adama and The Lesson featuring an effortlessly intimidating Richard E. Grant.

As a very special, mid-season program highlight we’ll be screening Beneath Clouds, Ivan Sen’s beautiful and assured feature film debut from 2002. The 35mm film will screen alongside a new 3-channel video work, Beneath Roads which will be presented downstairs in ACMI’s Gallery 3.
