The Cinema Australia Story
Cinema Australia is an online space dedicated to the support and promotion of Australian made films through independent news, reviews, features and interviews.
Cinema Australia stands alone in film media as the only website in the world solely dedicated to Australian films and the people who make them.
Along with our website – which is available across multiple platforms – Cinema Australia has a strong social media following made up of filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike.
We’ve formed strong relationships with many up-and-coming directors, actors and producers who trust us to share exclusive news about their films and reach appropriate target audiences.
We run regular, well-received features including ‘First Looks’, ‘Meet The Cast’, ‘Trailer of the Day’ and ‘The Crowdfunders’ as well as many exclusive articles written by short form, long form and documentary filmmakers.
Cinema Australia recently launched the Cinema Australia Podcast which is available via our website, SoundCloud and iTunes. Recent guests include Radha Mitchell (Looking For Grace), Matt Day (Muriel’s Wedding), Simon Stone and Odessa Young (The Daughter), Alex Proyas (Dark City) Max Cullen (The Great Gatsby) and many others.
We strive to continue to grow the Cinema Australia brand to benefit Australian films, filmmakers and industry professionals.
Cinema Australia is actively involved in the WA and national film community working alongside established brands like Revelation Perth International Film Festival, CinéfestOZ, NextGen, Peninsular Short Film Festival, Made in Melbourne Film Festival, Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and Queensland’s Capricorn Film Festival.
Each month, in association with Revelation Perth International Film Festival, Cinema Australia hosts a screening of an Australian film audiences may otherwise miss out on through traditional distribution methods. Each screening includes a Q&A, either in-person or via Skype, with a filmmaker or actor associated with the film.
Cinema Australia also hosts NextGen (developed by local filmmaker Jasmine Leivers), a showcase of WA made short films which also includes a Q&A with local industry professionals.
The Cinema Australia Logo
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 Perth Voice and the internationally syndicated Ginger Meggs cartoon strip.
