FILM SERIES

From spotlights on cinematic icons to idyllic locations and eras of cultural change, our Film Series are designed to surprise, delight and connect-the-dots. Think of this as your personalised guide to our cinema program so that you can get a bigger picture; if you look close enough some of the films are talking to each other.
