Choose from outdoor cinemas in the summer months and cultural festivals like the Spanish, French, Italian and Jewish film festivals. Catch the latest work by up-and-coming auteurs at ACMI, short film competitions and animation festivals or settle in for a night of classic films at Melbourne's perennial Cinematheque.
