In 2006, Australian director Shaun Wilson visited the Romanesque-Gothic St. Michael's church in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, encountering 51 medieval religious paintings. After painstakingly copying each artwork into a small travel notebook, Shaun reconstructed each painting through video using a series of actors and friends in locations of historical significance. Filmed between 2006-2013 in Germany, Australia and the UK, those images now form a unique blend of artistic beauty and cinematic stillness. 51 paintings gives insight into the aesthetic world of slow cinema, and is the first in a pentalogy of slow cinema films by the filmmaker.

The Parer Place Urban Screens present an innovative outdoor projection exhibition series celebrating the moving image in all its forms - film, television, games, new media, animation and art. The Urban Screens are solely dedicated to providing a digital canvas for emerging or experimental artists, with artworks animating the bold architecture of QUT's Creative Industries Precinct each night at dusk.
