Australia - Film Market

Synopsis

Despite its small size, the Australian film industry has produced some innovative and internationally successful films, all of which are potential content for traditional print and broadcasting media, as well as telecommunications-based media. This draws on a range of public and private resources to present an overview of the Australian film industry, noting production activity and industry revenues at the box office and via indirect streams. Government funding is also introduced here, and in addition to touching on Asutralian TV drama and documentaries, the major local players are profiled.
