Get the popcorn poppin’ and make yourself comfortable, the Jackdaw Film Series is back with a new selection of cracker films. 

This time it’s all about directors, with the kids’ and adult curation exploring the unique films of some massive cult names. 

“The idea was to play films you can’t go see at Forum, cult classics, really weird and surreal stuff,” curator Drew Halyday said. 

For two weeks starting today, kids can enjoy the magic and mastery of Jon Favreau, Hayao Miyazaki, and Tim Burton to name a few at the gallery’s converted surround sound cinema. 

“They’re all directors very known for their style,” Mr Halyday said.

The Jungle Book screens at 10am Wednesday followed by Elf at 2pm. 

Last year 700 children attended over 12 free screenings in the school holidays. Big kids can get pumped for selections from Sofia Coppola and John Carpenter.
