The travel bubble has arrived just in time for an exciting event on the Aussie cultural calendar; special naked screenings of a film about a nudist colony.

The film is called ‘Patrick’ and it's billed as a “Shakespearian tragi-comedy set in a nudist colony”

At the Sydney and Melbourne 'viewings' you can leave your clothes behind, but organisers have asked people if they can BYO a towel.

The screenings are part of the Fantastic Film Festival Australia and the festival's director, Hudson Sowada, told Mike Yardley all about it earlier this morning.

“You get your popcorn fully clothed, as normal.” says Sowada, “Once you enter the cinema itself, you sit down and derobe, put your towel over the seat and enjoy the film.”
