AACTA is proud to present an exclusive preview screening of Warwick Thornton's highly anticipated new film, THE NEW BOY, direct from its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

After the screening, we will be joined by the masterful director himself, Warwick Thornton, in an exclusive Q&A session, where he will share with the audience personal insights into his creative process, and his experience writing, directing, and shooting this remarkable film. 

THE NEW BOY is set in the 1940s, where a 9-year-old Aboriginal boy arrives in the middle of the night at a remote monastery run by a renegade nun. The boy's presence disrupts the delicately balanced world in this tale of spiritual struggle and the high stakes of survival. 

Featuring an all-star cast including Aswan Reid, Deborah Mailman, Wayne Blair and Cate Blanchett.

Don't miss your chance to be part of this exclusive event. Reserve your spot now for an unforgettable evening of cinema, storytelling, and the magic of THE NEW BOY.
