Cantrill’s Filmnotes was the title of a film magazine that originated at the other end of the world, in Australia. Arthur and Corinne Cantrill published this magazine dedicated to experimental film which they alone edited and designed. Their newly founded magazine and the regular film screenings they hosted in Melbourne had global appeal in the experimental film scene. As filmmakers, they also collaboratively made films since the 1960s which referred to the relationship of cinematic forms and the landscape. We screened a selection.
