The beloved Dead End Film Festival burrows back down Nicholson St to it’s humble headquarters in Brunswick (East). This event, the first of six monthly programs of resourceful cinema and performance, will celebrate the 2018 festival with an exhibition and selected highlights from the Coburg Drive-in last November.
Doors open from 7.00pm
241 Nicholson St
An installation of “artist cars” commissioned for DEFF II, designed and constructed by:
♥ Martin George
♥ Annabelle Kingston
♥ Christopher Sciuto
In 2018 an “artist car” was defined by curator, Plastic Loaves, as ‘an alternate viewing station for a group of roughly 5 bodies, accommodating for those who do not have their drivers license or whom are seeking a change from the common motor vehicle.’

An encore screening of 3 short films from the DEFF ’18 Program with retrospective awards ceremony.
All films will be close-captioned.
This event takes place on stolen Wurundjeri land. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people as first sovereign owners of this unceded country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
Flowers 241 has a small (85mm) step at the front entrance. Bathroom amenities can only be accessed by staircase. There are accessible bathrooms located at the Lomond Hotel (50m south).
DEFF is a community-run, international film festival that showcases and supports the work of resourceful filmmakers and local artists and performers both established and emerging.
The Dead End Film Festival aims to promote short narrative films that have limited screening opportunities. Aesthetically these films employ what we have coined a resourceful style. Resourceful filmmaking most commonly uses means readily available to the filmmakers, such as inexpensive cameras and untrained cast and crew. We believe that this resourceful approach can free filmmaking from economic and social restraints and in doing so provide a greater diversity of voices and stories represented on screen.
On Friday 29th November 2019 we will present the 3rd Annual Dead End Film Festival at the Coburg Drive-in.
(Friday) 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, on whose stolen land this event will take place. It is a privilege to gather on Aboriginal land and we pay respects to members of the community past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded.

You are invited to a special public service ~~~
On the evening of the 20th of July we will gather at the Pitt St Uniting Church for a unique serving of short films, performances, installations and wacko flavour.
With this screening we hope to delve into the living properties of film, transforming the church into a space for the celebration of alternative modes and forms of storytelling.
This special public service is brought to you by Desire Lines with guidance and format from Dead End Film Festival.
