Until Sunday, October 1, a trip to the Australian Centre for the Moving Image means exploring a stunning world-premiere exhibition dedicated to femininity across screen history. The Federation Square's Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion is splashing affection for women in cinema and television across its walls and halls in a big way — via more than 150 original costumes, objects, artworks, props and sketches, all championing oh-so-many female-identifying talents and their impact.

That's the spectacular showcase's daily setup; however, three times over its run, it's also welcoming in visitors when evening falls. Fancy spending a night at the film and TV museum revelling in everyone from Pam Grier and Margot Robbie to Michelle Yeoh and Zendaya? That's where Goddess Nights comes in on select Thursdays.

Locked in for May 25, July 27 and September 28, this events program pairs after-hours access to the exhibition with food, drinks, and femme-focused music and performances. On the bill: DJ JNETT, CD, POOKIE and Ayebatonye to get the shindigs started; then DJ Kalyani, Komang and DJ Mothafunk come winter; and also Claddy, DJ Brown Suga Princess, GLO and C.FRIM B2B Mirasai when spring hits.

Each party kicks off at 7pm, with the tunes echoing until 1am — and a curated range of cuisine and booze is being put together just for each evening.

3D motion artist Mikaela Stafford is also taking care of the events' lighting and visuals, so expect a festive mood.
