Melbourne Film Night – Graphic Novels! Melbourne!

The Australian Book Designers Association invites ABDA members and friends in Melbourne to drinks and a free screening of Graphic Novels! Melbourne!

This film uncovers an energetic, diverse and productive comics culture on the streets of Melbourne. It investigates the life and work of four graphic novelists in particular: Pat Grant, Nicki Greenberg, Mandy Ord and Bruce Mutard.

There are also interviews with four international comic book luminaries: Scott McCloud, Shaun Tan, Dylan Horrocks and Paul Gravett, all of whom lend their perspective to the development of comics culture in Melbourne.

Director and graphic novelist Bernard Caleo will introduce the film and show some of the books featured in the film!
