Votes for more than 300 Australian films #YOUMUSTSEE

16 July 2018

Only two weeks left to vote!
Have your say and vote today at www.adelaidefilmfestival.org

Thousands of votes have been cast, and more than 300 Australian features – fiction and documentary have been named as audience favourites in Adelaide Film Festival’s global poll for the top three Australian films of all time. Have your favourite films made the list? Only two weeks left to vote as voting closes Monday, 30 July, 2018. Have your say in helping curate the program for the 2018 Adelaide Film Festival with special screenings of our top voted films featuring in the October event.

“It is exciting and frankly somewhat staggering to see the number and diversity of Australian films that audiences feel are the must see films of all time. They are drawn from all the decades since Australia produced the world’s first feature film in 1906 and represent more than 300 stories of our national identity, of the people and places that have shaped Australia’s view of itself. We have been overwhelmed by the response,” said Amanda Duthie, CEO and Artistic Director of the Adelaide Film Festival.

The #YOUMUSTSEE campaign calls on audiences to celebrate, honour and acknowledge their favourite Australian screen stories and supports the current #MakeitAustralian campaign which throws the light on building a sustainable national screen industry.

ADL Film Fest is already known as a champion of Australian screen works (feature films and documentaries, shorts, VR, moving image and more) and was the first Australian film festival to invest in film production through the groundbreaking ADL Film Fest FUND resulting in over 100 projects to date.

Become a champion too and vote for Australian screen stories #YOUMUSTSEE at this year’s Adelaide Film Festival.
