Melbourne’s Cinema Nova has announced a retrospective of A24 films for the entire month of May, starting with the Safdie brother’s 2017 film Good Time.

Beginning from tomorrow – 2 May – the Carlton cineplex will screen a different A24 film every Thursday until the month’s end.

Since its establishment in 2012, film and TV distributor A24 has developed a cult-like following among cinephiles, rising to become a household name. While their films are distributed by local film distributors in Australia, the A24 name carries enormous cultural weight. From the release of Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers in 2013, cinemagoers have found themselves repeatedly drawn to the exciting projects A24 acquires for the US market.
