Screams on Screen

February 16 - February 17

Over two nights The Capitol will be the spookiest place in Melbourne, as it hosts Screams on Screen, a curated program to feature live music, art, feature films, rarely seen experimental shorts, and artist and director talks.

The program includes a 10-year anniversary screening of Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook, a selection of art/horror auteur David Lynch’s rarely screened earliest experimental shorts (1967-68) as well as new shorts from some of Australia’s finest emerging and established artists, a 4K restoration of Ann Turner’s Australian folk-horror cult classic Celia (1989), and the first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014).  Audiences will also be treated to an exhibition of the sculptural works of visual artist Isabel Peppard and a live Theremin performance by performer Roman Tucker (Rocket Science).  

Screams on Screen is presented by RMIT Culture and SIGN at RMIT in partnership with ACCA and supported by City of Melbourne Annual Arts Grants in association with ACCA’s exhibition “From the other side”. It is co-programmed by Jessica Balanzategui (School of Media and Communication, SIGN network lead), Elyse Goldfinch and Jessica Clark (ACCA).
