The Faculty of Arts is proud to present Turning Points in Cinema to Die For. For this masterclass we have invited seven Melbourne scholars, critics and artists to account for the profound and enduring impact of the cinema on their lives. Each of our speakers has chosen a beloved film which represents a turning point in their professional and personal experience and which has brought them to a new and inspiring understanding of the world and their place in it.

Unsurprisingly all six films have a history of significant audience and critical appeal. Above all, these films have distinguished themselves for their ability to reach out to and influence creative and performing artists and audiences well beyond the realms of the movie business. Studied together, they make up a new and refreshingly eclectic set of films to add to your essential viewing list. Join us in the discussion with our experts as they reveal why these are not only films to see before you die, but films to die for.

Hosted by Dr Mark Nicholls, Senior Lecturer in Cinema Studies at The University of Melbourne

Each session includes a 50-minute lecture discussing the speaker’s chosen film, followed by a break with light refreshments, and concluding with a discussion and Q&A with the speaker and host.
