The stars will shine bright on Saturday evening when the World Science Festival Brisbane takes the human experience into the realms of science fiction with the world premiere performance of Close Encounters of the Third Kind in Concert.

In a stunning international collaboration between World Science Festival Brisbane, Film Concerts Live! and Columbia Pictures, this world premiere performance brings together cinema, science and live music in one spectacular evening of extra-terrestrial excitement.

Steven Spielberg’s 1977 masterpiece, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, is widely considered one of the most treasured and influential science fiction films of all time.

Nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Original Score, Close Encounters of the Third Kind remains as engrossing and inspiring today as it was 40 years ago.

Now for the first time ever, audiences will be able to experience John Williams’ magnificent score performed in its entirety by an 84-piece orchestra and 80-voice choir live and in sync with this extraordinary film.
