Event description

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Stephan Elliott’s 1994 masterpiece ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’. To celebrate, join us for a spectacular screening in RMIT's suitably fabulous venue, The Capitol. The event will feature an introductory panel discussion with:

  • Tim Chappel - The film's Oscar-winning costume designer
  • Rebel Penfold-Russell - Executive producer
  • Cerise Howard - Melbourne Queer Film Festival Program Director and esteemed film aficionado
  • Kristy Kokegei - From the History Trust of South Australia

Since its initial screening 30 years ago, this multi award-winning film has had a significant impact on society and become internationally renowned as a symbol of freedom and support for the LGBTQIA+ community. Written and directed by Elliott, ‘Priscilla’ follows the road-tripping adventures of two drag queens and a transgender woman, played by Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp, as the trio cross the Australian desert from Sydney to Alice Springs. 

Presented in partnership with RMIT’s Social Change Enabling Impact Platform and RMIT Culture, as part of the Academy of the Social Sciences of Australia’s Social Sciences Week.
