    Event description

    This year’s AFTRS Library Presents... 35mm film program screens in conversation with the library’s show-stopping Curated Collections. A drawcard of the library, the Curated Collection is a display that’s designed and developed around a theme, film genre, filmmaker, or in tribute to a specific film. Spectacularly crafted by our movie-mad Librarians, each Curated Collection shines a light on overlooked and underappreciated gems in the library’s collection of physical media, celebrating our knowledge of, and devotion to cinema.
