ACS members discount for Adelaide Film Festival Bookings

A scene from Tracks

The Adelaide Film Festival is offering financial members of the ACS a substantial discount.

With 150 films from Australia and around the globe on offer, the Adelaide Film Festival promises something for everyone, from October 10-20. From the much-anticipated opening night feature 'Tracks', to new work from acclaimed directors Rolf de Heer, Warwick Thornton and Rowan Woods, and premiere films from 48 countries, the AFF "screen worships" the best of cinema, television, hand held devices and gallery installations.

For the first time, the AFF will head outside the city, travelling to suburbs and regional areas including Port Adelaide, Elizabeth, McLaren Vale, Mount Gambier and Whyalla. It will also feature a one-night only Drive-In experience, with the classic musical 'Grease' and the horror remake 'Patrick'. For the full program and bookings head to
