The Dead End Film Festival returns to Melbourne this Friday 30 November, for a night of film, music and art at the Coburg Drive-In cinema.

The evening celebrates ‘resourceful cinema’ – films made on low budgets where the narrative is central. Unconstrained by expensive equipment, this style also allows for spontaneity and play with the visual experience. A number of the films, including Mim Whiting’s Salacity (1998) and Lauren DeFilippo’s Clean Hands (2017), reflect on the car as a vehicle for storytelling; the transit of our everyday lives, a vessel of frustration, and also liberation.

Shows by Callan and BJ Morriszonkle will also happen throughout the night, and seating will be available for those who are not coming by car. The venue is wheelchair accessible, and the films will be closed-captioned.
