After a really fun year of watching wonderful and interesting films, we have decided to wrap up #HATMAus in its current format in order to focus on other things. We will be keeping the platform open for special event viewing parties – see the announcement below for the first of these! – but The Dig on Netflix (Sunday 7 March) will be the last weekly viewing party for the foreseeable future.
We’d like to thank Jason Herbert, original creator of the #HATM format, for his generosity and collegiality – he’s been a wonderful supporter of us here in Australia, and we’ve so enjoyed getting to work with him. We’d also like to thank every single one of our amazing co-hosts, who kindly gave up their time to watch with us and helped us understand each film we’ve watched in a new light. And finally, a big thank you to everyone who joined us each week, who have made the past year such fun. Thank you!

Date: Friday 26 March 2021, 7pm AEDT
We’ve teamed up with the Aviation Cultures Conference, running online from 25–28 March, for a #HATMAus special event viewing of Disney’s Victory Through Air Power (1943). The program will commence with an introductory discussion, and then a viewing of the short film Flight Plan (1950), with the main event commencing at 7.30pm. Both films are available free online.
