Vic AusAPT community celebrates Peter Malone’s 80th birthday and stellar career

Peter Malone

Members of the Victorian AusAPT community gathered recently to celebrate the 80th birthday of Father Peter Malone MSC, an iconic, generous contributor and co-founder of AusAPT.

An avid film viewer and critic, Peter has at times watched up to 10 new films a week. He has a 50-year career spanning faith and film holding senior positions connecting both including world president of SIGNIS, the World Catholic Association for Communication, 2001-2005.

An expert on type and movies, Peter is the author of many books including Let a Viking Do It, Hagar and Family Illustrate the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and The Type and Movie BookPersonality through the lens of cinema. Peter’s 17th book on Priests in Movies will be launched on 30 August.

Peter will be bringing all this rich experience and knowledge together when he joins us for the 2019 AusAPT Conference in Melbourne in November to present on: Can I Use Movies to Explore Type?

The images here show Peter celebrating with members of the Victorian AusAPT community recently plus we include an image of Peter with Director Martin Scorcese at the SIGNIS (World Catholic Association for Communication) World Congress in June 2017.

We are honoured to have Peter Malone as part of the AusAPT community. We thank him for his contributions over many years and wish him all the best for his 80th birthday and the years ahead.
