Samsara will be released in regional locations from the end of January and throughout February and March, such as the Gold Coast Arts Centre from Jan 31. There's also 4K screenings at The Astor cinema in Melbourne on February 15 and 16.

Samsara is screening in either 2K or 4K projection, depending on the capabilities of each individual cinema location. It is not screening in IMAX locations, as it was not shot for IMAX screens, nor supplied to us in IMAX format.
