CINEMA REBORN & AFTRS ANNOUNCE PROGRAM OF RARE CINEMA MASTERPIECES
Cinema Reborn, a program of rare cinema masterpieces, will be presented in partnership with Australian Film Television & Radio School (AFTRS), from May 3 – 7 at the AFTRS Theatre in Sydney.
This unmissable season of recently restored films and rare archived-sourced films by international and Australian directors has been developed by a community of cinema enthusiasts - programmers, filmmakers, screen historians and critics – alongside AFTRS.
The Opening Night film on May 3 is the 1939 French classic SANS LENDEMAIN/NO TOMORROW by director Max Ophüls.
Over the four following days Cinema Reborn will present 16 films. All will be screened following best practice in the presentation of archival or screen heritage titles.
“Cinema Reborn is intended to shine a light on the long history of the art of the cinema, the world-wide activity of film restoration and the treasures that exist in the world’s film archives,” said Geoff Gardner, Chair of the Cinema Reborn organising committee.
Neil Peplow, CEO of AFTRS, said: ““The School is proud to be hosting this wonderful program of films. It’s a rare opportunity for film lovers, students, alumni and industry to experience these classics from the world’s finest filmmakers, which would otherwise not be available to audiences.”
