As the sun goes down over Acton Peninsula, kick back and enjoy an evening of short films from across the globe.

First up, join speculative architect Liam Young and a fictional Kim Kardashian as they go on a storytelling walking tour through the flickering screen and beyond the fog of the cloud, in “Kim Kardashian and the Dark Side of the Screen”. The pair explore City Everywhere, a fictional city of the near future, extrapolated from the fears and wonders of an increasingly complex present. With spoken word and a rapid fire assault of film, animation and live sound mixing, Liam and Kim journey to a place found somewhere between the real and the imagined, stitched together from fragments of distant landscapes, extreme mega cities and designed urban fictions.

Next up will be a screening of the finalist short films from the global short film competition, anthropoScene. The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects in partnership with the National Museum of Australia and LA+ Interdisciplinary Journal of Landscape Architecture, invited submissions short films on the general subject of the new epoch of the Anthropocene. The ultimate winner of the $10K prize money will be determined via audience participation at the screening.
