2022 Miss Fisher Con sessions

This year, we'll be offering both in-person and virtual sessions again, and we plan to record as many sessions as possible - con attendees will be able to watch them via our website after we've all gone back to our homes. 

This schedule is close to final, but keep in mind that things may change as we get closer to the con, so be sure to check back for updates!

Thursday, August 4, 2022

Noon - 3:00 pm Registration & check-in || Lobby
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm Welcome reception || Oak Room

Friday, August 5, 2022

8:00 am - 9:00 am Registration & check-in || Grand Ballroom Lobby
9:00 am - 10:15 am Murder & Mozzarella: The Camorra and the rise of Organized Crime in Australia || Grand Ballroom
  “Jack, you didn’t think I’d be frightened off by the Camorra, did you?” “No, I knew you’d be drawn to it like a moth to a flame.” Let’s break omerta and talk a bit about the Camorra and the other Italian mafias operating in Australia during Miss Fisher’s time.
10:15 am - 10:30 am Break
10:30 am - noon Celebrity interview: Roger Lanser || TBD
  Roger is the director of photography on all three Miss Fisher series, plus the movie, and he’s going to share some stories from on the sets.
noon - 1:00 pm Lunch break || On your own
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm The Vixen’s Vehicles: What’s an adventuress without one? || Grand Ballroom
  The stage isn’t completely set for an Adventuress until there is an appropriate mode of transportation. We know our lead Vixen loves a fast ride on wheels and wing, so let’s explore the beautiful engineering that adds to the depth of her stories and each visual scene. If bright shiny objects really get your motor runnin’, check out the bits and baubles that made transportation in the 20s decadent enough for Phryne herself. You get extra points if you wear your vintage goggles, long flowy scarf, bike leathers or ear-flap aviator cap! Go ahead, dress the part! If you happen to have a vintage vehicle, bring some pics to share with the group.
2:15 pm - 2:30 pm Break
2:30 pm - 4:00 pm It Wasn’t Just the Charleston! || Grand Ballroom
  The introduction of jazz into mainstream society required a livelier dance style to match. The Charleston (introduced in a Broadway show) was a runaway fad, but it wasn’t the only thing happening on the dance floor! This presentation will take a look at the origins of the Charleston and other popular dance steps of the period, the contribution of African American artists, and how social dancing reflected the changing values in society at large.
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm Break & masquerade prep
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm Dinner & Masquerade (including a Charleston Dance Lesson) || Grand Ballroom
  In-person attendees: Sign up to participate in one of our prize categories! Dinner is included in your registration.
