The Fantastic Film Festival Is Hosting A Nude Screening Of A Film About A Nudist Colony

Dust off your birthday suit, because the Fantastic Film Festival Australia is hosting a nude screening of the film Patrick.

For those unfamiliar with the film, Patrick is best described as a Shakespearean tragi-comedy set in a nudist camp. The story revolves around the camp’s janitor, Patrick, who finds himself on an existential and unexpected quest.

In the spirit of the film, the FFFA is inviting the audience to engage with the liberation and spirit of the film by wearing absolutely nothing during the screening. There will, of course, be limitations to the session: you’ll need to bring a towel to sit on, no photography will be permitted and you’ll need to be 18 years of age or older—and as you’d assume, if you’re planning on visiting the candy bar, pop some clothes back on.

The nude screening of Patrick is taking place on Saturday 24 April at Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn at 7:30pm, but if you’d prefer to see the film fully clothed, you can do so at another session. Check out the Fantastic Film Festival’s program—which is full of unique and daring films—here.
