Dear all,

Details in the attached two documents about a unique screening and one day symposium happening next Tuesday evening, and all day Wednesday. Organised by the Melbourne Screen Studies group, there will be a screening of:

Boys in the Trees:  Tuesday 12 June, 6.00 – 8.30pm, RMIT University, Swanston Academic Building, 445 Swanston St, Melbourne, Bldg 80.01.02 (Cinema Theatre)

Boys in the Trees (2016) made its world premiere at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival before screening at festivals including Toronto, Busan, Sitges and winning Best Feature at the Austin Film Festival. The film was nominated for a 2016 AACTA Award for Best Original Music Score<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/toDbCP7yPrHJn8XJIPTiAz?domain=aacta.org>. The screening (courtesy of Mushroom Pictures<https://mushroompictures.com.au/boys-in-the-trees/>) will be followed by a conversation with director Nick Verso and composer Darrin Verhagen about the film’s score and soundtrack.  Note: The film will screen without dialogue to focus on its score and soundtrack. While we recommend that attendees see the film prior to the screening this is not essential – a full synopsis will be available.

Followed by:

Sound-Tracking Melbourne Symposium: Wednesday 13th June, RMIT University, Swanston Academic Building, 445 Swanston St, Melbourne, Bldg 80.05.12  (day starts at 9am)

Sound-Tracking Melbourne not only intends to give due critical and creative weight to the interlocking dimensions of sound design found in Melbourne screen culture, but to address the lack of sustained scholarship on the ways in which the city and its environs are imagined and brought to life on screen through particular ‘tracking’ soundscapes, from music videos to audiovisual art installations, and from film and TV to games and documentary. See attached programme for further details.
