Castaldi In Focus is a weekly screening of a high-quality archival or contemporary film. Each screening is introduced by Peter Castaldi live, and is followed by a Q&A with a key creative from the film, either live in the cinema or via Skype.
Castaldi’s career spans 35 years and includes working as a broadcaster on ABC TV and radio, as well as a film festival and cinema programmer.
Guests so far have included Craig Pearce, co-writer of Romeo+Juliet; Bennedikt Erlingsson, writer and director of Of Horses and Men; Jon Hewitt and Belinda McClory, co-writers of X; and John Maynard, Davood Tabrizi and Paul Livingston from The Navigator.
Coming up we have Nicholas Hope and Rolf de Heer from Bad Boy Bubby; Mark Lee, director of Gallipoli; Hani Abu-Assad, writer and director of Omar; and the directors of 20,000 Days on Earth from the UK. Veteran film critic and ABC TV star Margaret Pomeranz will also make an appearance, live on the floor, for The Apartment.
