2019 AACTA Awards presented by Foxtel
The two major 2019 AACTA Awards presented by Foxtel events - the Industry Luncheon and the Awards Ceremony & Official After Party - were both held in Sydney in December 2019.
About the AACTA Awards
The AACTA Awards (formerly the AFI Awards) have honoured screen excellence in Australia for over 60 years, since the first AFI Awards were held in 1958.
Held annually in Sydney in recognition and celebration of Australia's highest achievements in film and television, the AACTA Awards present over 55 awards across two major ceremonies. AACTA also recognises screen excellence, regardless of geography, through the AACTA International Awards, held annually in January in Los Angeles.
The peer-assessed AACTA Awards are a world-class marker of screen excellence alongside the Oscars® and the BAFTAs, and are the only Australian industry body to honour practitioners across all crafts and industry sectors, including feature film, documentary, short film, television, online, visual effects and animation.
The AACTA Awards are proudly supported by the New South Wales Government, through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
