See Melbourne through a whole new lens, thanks to a partnership between Broadsheet, The Glen Grant and Film Never Die. Guided by expert photographers from Film Never Die, a photography space, workshop and store based on Watertank Way in Melbourne’s CBD, you’ll learn how to use a film camera to get the best possible shots of your city. As well as being free to attend, the event includes free camera hire for the afternoon, a roll of film, free developing and scanning, plus free snacks and a cocktail, too.

On Saturday October 7, the course takes you around the city, to places like Melbourne Town Hall, Library at The Dock and Docklands Sunset Point. Then on Saturday October 28, the courses will take place in Fitzroy, visiting spots like the Fitzroy Town Hall, Edinburgh Gardens and the Rose Street Artists’ Market. (Two previous tours have already finished.)

Across both tours, your guide will be on hand throughout the entire afternoon, answering any questions and helping you achieve the best outcome from each shot. Each tour is separate, so you can take part in as many or as few as you choose – your experience will differ each time.

Each tour will finish at a bar with a cocktail to toast an afternoon of hard work. City tours will finish at Beneath Driver Lane and Fitzroy tours will end at The Everleigh. Hosted by The Glen Grant, you can also expect plenty of paired snacks to enjoy alongside the cocktail.

The tours are set to be intimate afternoons, with a strict cap of 30 guests at each one. Participation is free but registrations are essential. Each tour will begin at 3pm and finish at 5.30pm.

More information for the October tours will be available soon.
