Priscilla: 20 Years Young

In February the NFSA presents a sold-out evening of presentations, cabaret and an open-air screening of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (Stephan Elliott, Australia, 1994) to mark the film’s 20th birthday. Special guests include Academy Award-winning costume designer Tim Chappel and Executive Producer Rebel Penfold-Russell.

The event is followed by an online exhibition highlighting the NFSA’s collection materials relating to the film, including the award-winning costumes.
