Dark Mofo is a winter solstice festival based in Tasmania. Dark Mofo delves into centuries-old rituals to explore the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions, darkness, light, birth, death and renewal. Dark Mofo (6–23 June 2019) includes a Nude Solstice Swim, an eight-night community-focused Winter Feast, the opening of Mona’s major winter exhibition, a Dark + Dangerous Thoughts programme, plus music, film, and engaging art in venues throughout the city. We provide commercial rights consultation to McMILLAN MGMT for Dark Mofo.
GHOST WORLD & CRUMB IMMERSIVE CINEMA EXPERIENCE
Terry Zwigoff’s 2001 Ghost World, starring Scarlett Johannson, Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi, remains a cult classic to this day. We are thrilled to be working with Cinema Paradiso on a series of immersive cinema experiences for Ghost World and Zwigoff’s earlier documentary film Crumb at London’s Troxy this September.
Fuzzy produces some of the biggest music events in Australia. With a focus on creating the ultimate party, their philosophy is to program acts that are the best, not (always) the biggest, and continue to push boundaries with new music genres. Today, the Fuzzy family contains a suite of festivals including Field Day, Harbourlife, Listen Out, Listen In, and Curve Ball, plus additional off-season events. The Boss Experience provides commercial rights consultation to McMILLAN MGMT for Fuzzy.
