Melbourne filmmaker Richard Wolstencroft was ordered to pay $750 to the Royal Children’s Hospital in punishment for showing the refused classification cult flick, LA Zombie.

The Melbourne Underground Film Festival director screened the film last August after it was refused classification by Classification Australia, making the film illegal to screen. The film was removed from the Melbourne International Film Festival in July but was cancelled after the refusal of classification.

Wolstencroft advertised the film screening as “a public disobedience freedom of speech event,” at his film festival. Thankfully magistrate Luisa Bazzani granted a diversionary order and no conviction was recorded against him. For his part Wolstencroft admitted he was “a little chastened”, by the experience. As to why his fine was donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital we may never know. Apart from you know, kids love zombies.
