Did you know the earliest known feature film is the Australian production The Story of The Kelly Gang (1906)? In preparation for the 2018 Adelaide Film Festival, we’re running a competition to celebrate all of the Australian feature films and documentaries released since then, and giving entrants the chance to win a gold pass to the festival. That’s free entry to unlimited screenings for the entire festival!
The Australian film industry grossed an average of $596.4 million between 1976 and 2017, and with more productions each year, there’s no shortage of excellent films produced in the country. The My Top 3 #YOUMUSTSEE campaign invites the nation to celebrate, acknowledge and honour the films that have shaped the Australian film industry into what it is today.
The voting lines are open and to put your name in the draw for the prize you’ll need to nominate your top three Australian feature films – fiction or documentary – released anytime in the last 112 years. The audience-curated feature films #YOUMUSTSEE will screen at the Adelaide Film Festival in October in a celebration of Australian cinema. For inspiration, check out the votes of industry leaders like Hugo Weaving, Margaret Pomeranz, David Stratton, Warwick Thornton and more.
Get started by voting for your favourite Australian films here and continue the conversation by sharing your votes on social media using #YOUMUSTSEE (tag us at @adlfilmfest). Don’t miss your chance to win a gold pass to the 2018 Adelaide Film Festival! Entries close July 30.
