Released on 27 February, the Miss Fisher movie had already completed its big dash in cinemas when the COVID-19 shutdown was announced. Fervent fans will miss the chance to don their glad rags and drink champagne at the movies, but the film is available on lots of platforms to buy or rent now, including Acorn TV, iTunes and Google Play. You can find Mel Campbell’s review of the film here, or read our interview with star Essie Davis about playing the glamorous flapper sleuth.
The groundbreaking documentary, directed by Maya Newell (Gayby Baby) and made in association with Indigenous families and communities in Alice Springs, had a great little run in cinemas but would have gone longer without the shutdown. It’s now kicking off four special event online Virtual Cinema screenings + Q&As with filmmakers and partners from 17-19 April. This allows audiences to watch it simultaneously with others and be part of an interactive question and answer session immediately afterwards. Another option is to rent it online through Vimeo. You can read our interview with Maya Newell about the fascinating collaborative process of making the film.
