PRE-RELEASE MOVIES - Feb 2007

Participants in the 8th season of Movies Now (from Wed. Feb 28, 2007, at 6.30pm, for six Wednesdays at Dendy Newtown, Sydney) will again see a program of films before their commercial release, followed by a discussion, usually with a guest from the film, moderated by Andrew L. Urban.

Movies Now, a course offered by Sydney University’s Centre for Continuing Education, has screened films like Catch A Fire, Little Miss Sunshine, United 93, Jindabyne, The Black Dahlia, Volver and Ten Canoes. BOOK ONLINE

The sessions explore the background of the film, gain additional insider information and generally dissect the contents. The films are selected by Urban from the upcoming release schedule, drawn from a mix of mainstream and arthouse / foreign language films, and are not announced in advance, to minimise outside influences on participants. Movies Now was launched in July 2005.
