Nocturnal Film Festival

22nd & 25th June
SLEEPLESS Festival Hub, 170 Nicholson St Footscray

Presented over two evenings, Nocturnal Film Festival celebrates Melbourne filmmakers' darker side. 

Each program features a selection of weird and wonderful films by Melbourne filmmakers. Films may contain nudity, violence, gore, strong language, drug use, horror and dark humour (all the good stuff!) so viewer discretion is advised.

Both sessions will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers, and audiences will have the chance to vote for their favourite entrant - with the winner receiving a 12 month discount on equipment hire from Rentyhouse!
