Fellini Satyricon (1969), directed by the master Italian director Federico Fellini, was first shown in Rome on 3 September 1969 and released throughout Italy on 18 September 1969. It is among the most famous (though unusual) representations of the Roman world. Originally both admired and attacked, this conference aims to mark the film’s 50th anniversary and reconsider its originality and importance.

Following the film, there will be a dinner for speakers and invited guests at Istanbul Restaurant (695 Brunswick St, New Farm). For those coming by public transport, the 199 and 196 buses have stops within 20 metres of the cinema.

Registration (Required for film-showing and conference)

If you would like to attend any of the events on 4-5 October, please contact Tom Stevenson (t.stevenson@uq.edu.au) by Monday 30 September.
