Worldwide Access to Australian Screen Content

AACTA TV is an online viewing platform that allows you to watch a collection of Australia's best films online.

Whilst some content is available at different times of the year, the key purpose of AACTA TV is to provide our members with access to productions in competition for the AACTA Awards. This assists our members to vote for the Awards, and is particularly beneficial for members residing outside of capital cities, and those who live abroad. The nominated short films and feature length documentaries, and a selection of the feature films in competition for the 5th AACTA Awards will be available to view on AACTA TV online around mid-September 2015.

New Content – Screenwriting Masterclass with Andrew Knight

Our recent Screenwriting Masterclass with Andrew Knight is now available to watch on AACTA TV, exclusively for AFI and AACTA members.

Knight’s writing credits include the classic comedy series Fast Forward, Full Frontal and The D-Generation; the TV movies Kangaroo Palace, After the Deluge, My Brother Jack, The Broken Shore and Jack Irish. It also includes drama series Rake - now in its fourth season, as well as the much beloved ABC series SeaChange. He co-wrote last year’s AACTA Award winning Best Film The Water Diviner, and is currently writing four feature films, two of which are slated to go into production this year, and an eight-part TV drama series for the ABC.
