Advance Australian Film is an exciting, informative investigation into the Australian film industry.
Independent filmmaker Courtney Dawson takes the viewer on an exploratory journey that chronicles the development and inner-workings of Australian cinema. It’s been 21 years since an Australian film has reached number one at the box office, and our films have consistently grossed under 5% of annual revenues for over a decade. Through in-depth discussions with key industry figures and a careful analysis of Australia’s past successes, Advance Australian Film ultimately seeks solutions for a brighter future.
The documentary also examines the changes occurring across the world, with crowd-funding, social media marketing and alternative distribution models empowering filmmakers like never before and changing the way movies are being produced and accessed.
Featuring some fascinating interviews with David Stratton, Emile Sherman, Kriv Stenders among others, as well as red carpet interviews with Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Baz Luhrmann, Joel Edgerton, Wayne Blair and Richard Roxburgh.
Let's support, celebrate and Advance Australian Film.
