The Winter Night Screen Project is an annual screening event for the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick that showcases visually dynamic video works through the winter evenings. Each year a curated program of moving images are taken out of the gallery and projected onto the Brunswick Town Hall Window, visible to passers-by from Sydney Road after dark.

Night Visions offers escape from the dark through an enchanting program of animations and experimental video works by Melbourne based artists. These dreamscapes evoke the hypnagogic state experienced immediately before sleep and “the visionary scenes that pass before us” as eloquently described by Charles Dickens in Oliver Twist. They invite wandering minds to enter vividly imagined worlds where feet don’t touch the ground and imagery unfolds with the compelling logic of a recurring dream.
