Paracinema 

Programmer Ben Buckingham and programme manager Meg Donaldson talk about how you set up an ambitious event like this within the space of a space of a month!

Described by the organisers of this Melbourne-based event as "the mutation of high and low art – not just genre cinema, it embraces all forms of transgressive visual media culture."
