Fall in love with Aussie Cinema again. 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.
