Benalla Art Gallery Events - Tours

Film Night

Visit the Gallery for an after-hours viewing of War Pictures: Australians at the Cinema 1914 - 1918. Discover a fascinating selection of shorts, newsreels, propaganda and feature films produced by the developing, local film industry, as well as a selection of international content. See how the war was presented on the big screen, and explore the melodramas and comedies that offered entertainment and escapism to those on the home front.

A collaboration between ACMI and The National Film & Sound Archive of Australia.
