COVID-19 update

Following the latest advice from the Victorian Government ACMI will be temporarily closed from Fri 16 July. Unfortunately, the Tue 20 Jul Animated Transformations session will be cancelled until further notice.

Customers with tickets for these dates will be automatically refunded via the card they made the purchase with. If your card has expired, please email to make alternative arrangements. Refunds may take 5-10 days to appear in your account.

We look forward to welcoming you back to ACMI soon. Look after yourself, and each other.


Animation has the incredible ability to morph, shape-shift and transition from one place to another, in ways that are limited only by the animator's imagination.

No other artform and no other visual medium does this with anything approaching the mind-bending capability and fluidity of animation. In animation, if you can imagine it you can show it and this program brings together some of the most astonishing examples of Animated Transitions that we have seen all year.
