From Pinball Tsunami to Supanova Blast!

Last year's stunning pinball tsunami has now turned stellar with a Supanova blast! The Australian Pinball League and Amusement Machine Distributors are very proud and excited to team up with Supanova Pop Culture Expo and Timezone Australia to hold an unprecedented national pinball competition, The Australian Timezone Supanova Pinball Championship!

The stakes are high: the state finalists will be flown to the National Grand Final at November's Supanova Expo in Brisbane (airfare and accommodation paid), with the winner taking home an amazing The Avengers pinball machine.

Not only is Timezone where many Australians learned to play pinball, but some of the best players in the country credit Timezone for their introduction to the game. It is also where many registered competition pinball machines will be available for competitors to try and win a place in the Finals.

Timezone and Supanova are very excited to bring back this classic and vibrant form of entertainment for a whole new generation of fans.

For more information on the different heats and entry requirements, go to our activities page and get set to become a real pinball wizard!

Supanova Serves Up a Slice of Delicious Genre Film in Sushi Girl!

Straight from its North American sell-out premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal and acclaimed screenings at Toronto After Dark Film Festival, Supanova in collaboration with the Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) is proud to host the cast and crew of the independent ‘cult classic in the making’, SUSHI GIRL, including special panels, sneak peeks and autograph sessions at the Supanova Expos in Melbourne and on the Gold Coast.

Meanwhile, the GCFF will host the Australian premiere on Friday April 19 at Birch, Carroll and Coyle Cinemas at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on the Gold Coast.

SUSHI GIRL director/writer Kern Saxton will be joined at Supanova and on the GCFF red carpet by the film’s writer/producer Destin Pfaff and members of the powerhouse cast including Tony Todd (CANDYMAN), Noah Hathaway (THE NEVERENDING STORY) and James Duval (DONNIE DARKO). The internationally acclaimed cast will participate in Q&A sessions (with exclusive footage being screened from the film) at both Supanova Melbourne and Supanova Gold Coast including a free signing session featuring a collectable SUSHI GIRL movie poster.

For more information on SUSHI GIRL, visit the official movie website at sushigirlmovie.com

And stay tuned to Supanova as we’ll be announcing the schedule for all the SUSHI GIRL cast and crew over the next few weeks including opportunities to see and meet them collectively and individually.

Bullies Don't Scare Supanova! We Team up with Boxing Champion, Kostya Tszyu!

Bullying is one thing we will not stand for at Supanova. It effects so many lives and can make people feel powerless and alone, which is exactly the opposite of how we want you to feel as a part of the Supanova community! Someone who agrees with us and is trying to make a difference is the former Undisputed World Boxing Champion, now turned author, Kostya Tszyu. Since Kostya’s semi-retirement from boxing, the internationally-renowned four-time World Light-Welterweight Champion has nurtured a new career: children’s book author. He appears alongside co-writer Dustin Warburton, whose film SPIDERS 3D has just been released, and illustrator, Dan Monroe. Together, they have released ‘Bullies Aren’t Scary’, a storybook intended to empower children who experience bullying.

Dustin and Kostya will be at both the Melbourne and Gold Coast expos, where they'll discuss the process of making the book, sign copies of the book (which will be available for purchase), and explore what bullying means to them and how we can overcome it. Meanwhile, fans of Kostya’s boxing can also purchase professional photo-ops or have boxing memorabilia signed by him.
