Adelaide Film Festival in the Port

Port Adelaide will be hosting two one-night-only events as part of this year’s Adelaide Film Festival — 9:16 vertical cinema and a special screening of Bad Boy Bubby.

After a humble but successful beginning last year with the inaugural 9:16 Film Festival, Film Buff Central proprietor, Mike Retter and 9:16 co-producer, Chris Luscri have teamed up with Renewal SA, City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the Adelaide Film Festival to expand their ideas in 2015.

See 9:16 on October 22 in a tall-screen format where the conventional cinema screen is rotated by 90°. The event will also show exclusively commissioned works and a curated selection of the best vertical cinema works from around the world.

On October 17, Rolf de Heer’s controversial masterpiece comes home to Port Adelaide. Bad Boy Bubby is both an international cult classic and local folklore, and will be presented in binaural sound for the first time — expect to wear an audio headset to immerse yourself into actor Nick Hope’s experience.

The film also holds a record for having 31 cinematographers to give every scene a distinctly different look. Originally part of a low-budget methodology, this became an integral concept.
