HISTORICAL AUSTRALIAN WOMEN ANIMATORS COLLECTION

WHEN: Tuesday 20th June - 6pm

 

MURDEROUS TALES

When a film is described as "A seriously unhinged and maniacal ride through a twisted set of tales that mercilessly intertwine Mexican goblins, Elvis impersonators, three-headed dragons, tricked-up sock puppets and a virtual cavalcade of heroic deaths" you KNOW you can't possibly miss it. Make sure you check out Murderous Tales, a feature from Czech filmaker Eva Probylova!

 

WHEN: Thursday June 22nd – 8:30pm

 

LATE NIGHT BIZARRE - THE CLASSIC SEX TAPES COLLECTION

One strictly for the grown ups - here's a celebration of nudity in animation, featuring the works of animators such as Australia's Frank Armiento, Japan's Naoki Yamaji, the UK's Cathy Snelling, and Hong Kong's Wong Ping amongst many others! If a decade and a half of sexuality-infused animation classics is your bag, then here is your perfect Friday night on the town.

 

WHEN: Friday 23rd June - 10.30pm
