You've spent hours in front of his films – from cult mainstays Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction to new releases Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained – each bloodier than the last. So, are you ready to be face-to-face with Quentin Tarantino?

The legendary film director is coming to Melbourne with actor Kurt Russell ahead of the release of their new film, The Hateful Eight.

Tarantino and Russell will host an exclusive screening of the film at Rivoli Cinemas in Camberwell, followed by a 45-minute Q&A session. That's a lot of time to work in some Pulp Fiction mystery-briefcase queries.

The Hateful Eight has created huge hype around its release. The film is set in the wake of the US Civil War and follows the exploits of a bounty hunter in snowy Wyoming.

The event is part of a one-week season at Rivoli Cinemas, where The Hateful Eight will be screened in 70mm film. Tickets are available to the public online at Village Cinema's website on Thursday December 10 from 10am. Village Movie Club Members can purchase tickets from 9am.
