Commencing in the early evening and going onwards deep into the night, Late Late Night features a range of Mudfest works held in North Court and the Ida Bar.

The following works are being presented as a part of Late Late Night:

Screening of VCA Archival Films in North Court
Lost Shorts is a series of screenings drawing from recently digitised archive of VCA graduate films. Presenting a retrospective of narrative, animated and documentary shorts selected from an archive of over 1800 films Lost Shorts aims to illuminate the interplay of historical and contemporary aesthetics and culture. Moving Image Creative producer Harry Goodlet and the New Student Precinct with its creative partner Next Wave are proud to present Lost Shorts as a part of Mudfest. All films are captioned.

Comedy Gala Night in the Ida Bar
An upbeat comedy night at the Ida Bar featuring sketch, stand-up and musical acts.

Interdisciplanary Extravaganza in the Ida Bar
Dark different and a little bit wild—the Interdisciplinary Arts program at Mudfest 2019 showcases some tantalising new projects from the more obscure side of the tracks. Come and get a taste at Late Late Night, with immersive performances form the teams behind Feast, M E D U S A and Magic Dykes XXL. Content warning: strong lighting effects, loud noises, mature themes.

Ultra in the Ida Bar
Mediating the space between the natural and contrived is Ultra, an eclectic improvised electronic soundscape.

The Mudfest team acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, learn and celebrate. We pay our respect to their elders past and present, and future. This was and always will be Aboriginal land and sovereignty was never ceded.
