    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Please note: due to an unexpected issue with the film print, we are unable to screen Suspiria on 35mm. We will instead be screening a 4K digital remaster of the film.

    This year’s AFTRS Library Presents... 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.
