Our Outdoor Screen in the Plaza presents a unique, specialised program that celebrates artists, filmmakers, animators, sporting heroes and our community.

'This is Yarra,' Lydia Rui Huang (2018)


Cities, Places, People

Curated by Zachery Hepburn, ABC film critic and General Manager of the Astor Theatre 

"Together our experiences and stories can offer a transformative conversation. Across these four works, spanning narrative, documentary and animation we see inspiring and inclusive works profiling personal stories and recollections. This stream of short works invites you into the lives of documentary subjects and fictional characters as they present their unique stories and welcome us into their cities and places."
