Melbourne Overlooked Film Festival 2021

Opening Night

Despite its emetic preoccupations – exploding stomachs, elongating tongues, etc – this mordant debut feature is in fact less a splatterfest than a consumerist satire.

– Time Out

This event has been cancelled in line with the Victorian government’s public health announcement. For further information please visit MOFF’s website.

An RMIT student-led initiative unearthing underground, underappreciated and unconventional cinema. The Festival opens with an exclusive screening of cult classic sci-fi horror Body Melt (1993) followed by an intimate panel with director Philip Brophy.

Starring iconic Aussie actors Ian Smith (best known as Harold Bishop from Neighbours) and Gerard Kennedy (Glitch, 2015), this schlocky ozploitation gem follows the residents of peaceful Pebbles Court who are being unknowingly used as test experiments for a new supplement pill that causes rapid body decomposition, ghastly mutations and painful death.

Tickets on sale 3 June.

Presented by RMIT School of Media and Communication.
