FINAL CUT is Melbourne's biggest monthly short film night and takes place in the seriously cool 1,000£Bend bar/cafe/gallery at 361 Lt. Lonsdale Street. Their big screen, surround-sound PA and comfy seating make it an ideal place to watch films.

In addition to a great selection of top Aussie and international shorts, you will be entertained by our unique Pop-up Cabaret featuring the city's finest street performers and circus acts before the films start. With drinks at pub prices, tasty $9 burgers (with veg option) and a late bar, this has got to be Melbourne's best FREE gig!

Screenings take place on the last Tuesday of the month and doors open at 5.30pm for early-bird drinks and socialising, and the pre-screening cabaret starts soon after, so don't be late!

For news, clips, cabaret updates, programme details and lots more, join our Meetup group today. You can also and watch last month's audience faves on our video-packed Facebook page.
