ACMI (the Australian Centre for the Moving Image) is one of the finest cultural institutions in the nation, sitting in the heart of Melbourne’s Federation Square. Over the summer months, ACMI is screening two curated film selections that celebrate some of the best films of 2022 and a series of films that represent and celebrate the season of summer.
