Montague - a community lost and found

A short film project comprising interviews, photographs, archival film footage, home movies, ephemera and objects.

The Port Phillip Heritage Centre is developing a short film project to be part of our forthcoming exhibition "Montague: A community lost and found" which will take place from 4 December 2019 at the Carlisle Street Arts Space.

We are seeking people to be interviewed and share their memories and experiences of living or working in the Montague area, a small enclave of South Melbourne. Working with a local film company we will produce several filmed interviews. In addition to the interviews we are seeking to loan photographs (digital copies), objects, home movies and archival footage for inclusion in the film.  

The aim of the project is to capture the social history and legacy of this unique enclave within South Melbourne for the public record and for future study.

If you can contribute your knowledge, memories, photographs or film footage or know someone who could, we would love to hear from you.

To register your interest and give us an idea about your connection to Montague please take part in this short survey.

All information gathered is subject to the City of Port Phillip's privacy policy.

The Survey will close on August 31.
