In 2020, Cinema Australia had more visitors to our website and more social media engagements than ever before. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our readers for their continued support, and to welcome all of our new followers.
Tired of mainstream Australian media overlooking local films and devoting so many column centimetres and airtime to Hollywood gossip, Perth-based Australian film buff Matthew Eeles launched Cinema Australia in 2013.
Cinema Australia is an online space dedicated to the support and promotion of Australian made films through independent news, reviews, features and interviews. Along with our website, Cinema Australia has a strong social media following made up of filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike. We strive to continue to grow the Cinema Australia name to benefit Australian films, filmmakers, industry professionals, and audiences keen to know more about Australian film releases.
We run regular, well-received features including ‘Sunday Shorts’, ‘Meet The Cast’, ‘Trailer of the Day’ and ‘The Crowdfunders’ as well as many exclusive articles written by filmmakers.
Our strength is our highly-regarded and much-read interviews which are published in Q&A and article formats, as well as video recorded and shared across social media and YouTube.

Cinema Australia is actively involved in the film community working alongside respected film festivals like Revelation Film Festival, CinefestOZ, Gold Coast Film Festival and Capricorn Film Festival.
Matthew Eeles is also the Festival Director of the WA Made Film Festival – Western Australia’s biggest celebration of locally-made screen content presenting a curated program of screenings and events which engages the community with the best of the WA screen industry.
Cinema Australia has formed strong friendships with many up-and-coming directors, actors and producers who trust us to share exclusive news about their films.
The Kookaburra is native to our land and has one of Australia’s most recognised calls which makes it the perfect icon to represent our brand. The Cinema Australia logo was created by WA’s Jason Chatfield, cartoonist for The New Yorker and the internationally syndicated Ginger Meggs cartoon strip.
