Schedule Change


2008_lotd.jpgDue to the archival nature of the print, Land of the Dead will now screen at the Forum (not Greater Union as advertised). It will still be at the same time of 11.30pm.

Son of a Lion


sonoflion.jpgDon't miss the Australian/Pakistani film Son of a Lion tonight at 7pm at the RMIT Capitol Theatre with special guests director Benjamin Gilmour, producer Carolyn Johnson, executive producer Hayat Shinwari and actor Niaz Shinwari attending.
"Benjamin Gilmour's Son of a Lion was the revelation of the Berlin fringe. When not scarily entertaining - in the depiction of the guerilla mindset that prefers Taliban tyranny to American intrusion - it is scarily funny."
The Financial Times
