Presented by ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) in Association with University of Melbourne
Shakespeare on Film
This is a full-to-the-brim season including a whole slew of new films and glorious classics. Be sure to check their full programme.
“In association with the University of Melbourne ACMI presents an international touring program from the British Film Institute (BFI) and the British Council that explores the deep affinity between cinema and The Bard. With so much high drama, history and romance, it’s little wonder that William Shakespeare is credited with more film adaptations that any other writer. Special presentations include Play On! Shakespeare in Silent Cinema with a new score by the Globe musicians, and a digital restoration of Richard III with an exclusive on-stage discussion between Ian McKellen and Richard Loncraine recorded at BFI Southbank.”
Tickets $17/$13/$10, plus 3-session and 6-session passes.
