David Stratton: A Cinematic Life directed by Sally Aitken, release date 9th of March (via Palace Cinemas)


There are a number of films directed by women showing at the French Film Festival across the country throughout March and April (including Planetarium). See the full festival lineup, here. (Directors are noted on each film page).

Raw and XX are showing at the Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow at Event Cinemas in March.

Mercury has two sessions of A United Kingdom, as well. And there is at least one directed by a woman at Transitions Film Festival, which seems to be touring the country from February, through April.

Check below for where the films are screening*:

Palace Nova; Hoyts; Wallis; Greater Union; Reading Cinemas; Moonlight CinemaCapri Theatre; Odeon Star; The Regal Theatre/Trak Cinemas; Gawler Cinemas; Mercury Cinema**.

As always, I’m just one (forgetful and easily overwhelmed) person and can sometimes miss things so, please let me know if I have.

*I’ve focussed on cinemas that have chains in SA/only SA cinemas.

**Mercury screens limited current releases.
