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.
