“Recently we have seen one of our biggest releases become the most pirated Australian film ever”, said Neil Foley, Director of Monster Pictures, referring to the acclaimed JOHN DOE: VIGILANTE. “By putting on special event screenings we are trying to counter the pirating culture by providing true genre fans with an opportunity to do more than just watch the films. We want the fans to engage with how these films should be experienced and provide screening events that elevate the genre”, he continued.
The STARRY EYES screening is the first in a series of new releases that will be shown on the 13th of every month at Backlot Studios as part of the ‘Monster Fest Presents’ program.
April will see the amazing HONEYMOON screened, followed by LET US PREY in May, CHARLIE’S FARM in June, THE EDITOR in July and WHITE SETTLERS in August.

“We expect Monster Fest Presents: STARRY EYES to sell out, as not only is it a fantastic film, but fans will want the opportunity of speaking with Alex Essoe in the intimate and luxurious surroundings of Backlot Studios”, said David Leadbetter, Monster Fest National Marketing Manager. “The ongoing season of Monster Fest Presents is going to create an important monthly genre film night in Melbourne and we are excited about the next Monster Fest film festival, scheduled for November 2015″. he continued.
