Monash student films to screen in Federation Square

This June the Melbourne night will light up with Monash student films when they hit the big screen at Federation Square. A selection of the best films made by Film and Screen Studies students over the past number of years will be presented in a series of one-hour programs at 6pm on the 3rd, 4th, 8th & 9th of June, 2019.

With the city looming large in the background, these short creative documentary films poetically and playfully deal with topics as varied as the loss of light in the city night, Melbourne’s drag scene, fishing in Port Phillip bay, a day in the life of a Melbourne dog or a lyrical ode to the relentless pace of the city. What emerges is an eclectic and youthful vision of Melbourne life told from the perspective of Monash’s engaged, enraged and creative students. Each of the films showcased range from 4 to 10 minutes in length and were created as part of student coursework projects in the School of Media, Film and Journalism at either undergraduate (ATS2983 Screen Project) or masters level (APG5184 Video-Making as Research).

The program at 6pm on Monday 3rd, Tuesday 4th and Sunday 9th of June will feature a selected mix of films from across these Film and Screen Studies production-based units. The program at 6pm on Saturday 8th will feature a selection of the best films made in Video-Making as Research during semester 1 in 2019.

Of course, everyone is welcome to attend this free and open event. We’d love you to come along to watch some incredible content by some very talented Monash media makers.
