AACTA Awards



AACTA Awards Gold Coast, Queensland

The AACTA Awards (formerly the AFI Awards) have honoured screen excellence in Australia since the first AFI Awards were held in 1958.

To be held on the Gold Coast from February 2024, in recognition and celebration of Australia's highest achievements in film and television, the AACTA Awards present over 55 awards across two major ceremonies.

The peer-assessed AACTA Awards 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.
