Time Out Melbourne

This film fiend’s delight will engage the amateur auteur, serious cinephiles and amuse those searching for a memento

Negotiating the exit of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image via the gift shop is usually the final obstacle between the end of an exhibition and freedom. Once inside the store, though, all thoughts of exodus will be promptly cut from your inner monologue. The incredible range of all things screen will have you scouring the shelves of high-quality publications on film theory, TV, digital media, cinema, and animation.

In addition to the excellent study guides, film-still postcards, DVDs, toys, gadgets, video games, scripts and biographies regularly on offer, catalogues and related publications are specially produced for each major exhibition. If you had the misfortune to miss out on an exhibition and want to get your hands on the bespoke merchandise, the ACMI Store will sort that out for you. You may end up adding the hold music to your order as it’s all available for your purchasing pleasure.

The ACMI Store also offers a special order service in Australia which will surprise and satisfy the most obtuse collector of rare titles. ACMI's Twitter feed alerts you to information about special in-store events and signings. Such as, oh you know, meeting Tim Burton, in the flesh.
