Chinese Lunar New Year

19 Feb

To celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, ACMI lights up with a special evening of family activities including magical green screen workshops, lantern making demonstrations, free film screenings, and extended opening hours for the Yang Fudong: Filmscapes exhibition.

No Longer Available.
  • Take a magical journey in search of lost scrolls, inspired by an ancient Chinese story, in our free green screen workshops. Create a script then act it out using green screen technology to fly on your own magic cloud.

    Use simple tools and paper folding techniques to create your very own Chinese lantern and light the way into the new year. Or drop into our cinemas and enjoy some high drama and action with a selection of Chinese animated films from the Chinese Consulate Collection.
