This Sunday Aussie filmmakers Ben Lewin and Judi Levine will be doing a Q&A after a screening of The Sessions, their film that recently won the Audience Award and Special Jury Prize at Sundance and is getting a whole heap of Oscar buzz.

The Sessions tells the true story of journalist Mark O’Brien, who is paralysed by polio and determined to lose his virginity at 38. No, it was not the basis for 40 Year Old Virgin – but it is very funny. The film stars Helen Hunt, John Hawkes and William H. Macy.

If you’d like to know about what it takes to make a Sundance-favoured flick or what it was really like working with William H. Macy, drop by the Nova for the Sunday Skype session, which will follow a screening of the film.

WHERE: Cinema Nova, Lygon Court Carlton
WHEN: Sunday 4 Nov. Screening at 12.20pm followed by Q&A at 2pm

Lady Macbeth is a visceral, violent, and brilliant masterpiece that goes beyond the traditional Victorian BBC flick.

Somewhere Else video sings of summer

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
