Film Info

ATP is pleased to present a film programme curated by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Taking place on January 9th and 10th at Mount Buller Cinema, January 14th – 18th at Brisbane’s Australian Cinémathèque at the South Bank and January 17th and 18th at Sydney's Cockatoo Island, the cinema programme is presented free of charge to those attending the events.

“ATP Cinema provides the unique opportunity to screen lesser known and hard to come by films, such as Ghosts of The Civil Dead and Pure Shit and also some such as Apocalypto and Walkabout that were made purely for the large screen, and need to be seen in such a way. The selection of films chosen by the Bad Seeds are either personal favourites or feature members of the band in some fashion, through soundtrack or screenplay writing. The aim is to enlighten, entertain or provide the chance to revisit these unique cinematic moments. Ranging thematically from the sacred to the profane, these films continue to inform and entertain us. Made up of a healthy dose of Australian releases, and a nod to some of the great masters of cinema, Kurosawa, Melville, Roeg and Peckinpah - the chance to see some of these on the big screen is reason enough to break open the popcorn.”
