Australian Film Festivals: Audience, Place and Exhibition Culture is the first book to offer an in-depth examination of the history, operation, and growth of film festivals as a cultural phenomenon within Australia.
Tracing the birth of film festivals in Australia in the 1950s through to their present abundance, it asks why film festivals have prospered as audience- driven spectacles throughout Australia, while never developing the same industry and market foci of their international fellows.
Drawing on over sixty-years of archival records, festival commentary, interviews with festival insiders and ephemera, this book opens up a largely uncharted history of filmculture activity in Australia.
Please join us on Thursday 23 February when Michelle Carey (Artistic Director, Melbourne International Film Festival) will launch Kirsten Stevens’ Australian Film Festivals: Audience, Place and Exhibition Culture.
Date: Thursday 23 February
Location: Loop Project Space & Bar, 23 Meyers Place, Melbourne
