Premiere Screenings with Q&As
Members receive exclusive opportunities to see the latest Australian television and feature film productions before their cinema and on-air releases at year-round member screenings available both in cinema and online. These screenings, which are complimentary to members, provide a unique insight into the productions, with key cast and crew including directors, producers, actors, writers and cinematographers participating in panel discussions held following the screenings.
These events and filmed discussion panels often serve as previews for the productions, complete with media, network executives and many cast and crew attending. They also give you the opportunity to view the very best in Australian new releases before the general public and in a private setting, accompanied by fellow screen enthusiasts and practitioners.
In addition to receiving complimentary, exclusive access to year-round screenings and events AACTA General members also receive exclusive access to discounts and offers via our valued partners.

AFI membership offers generous benefits, supports the Australian screen industry and has opened my eyes to the depth and vibrancy of the industry. It has changed the way I view Australian films and is worthy of so much more support.
Discounted cinema entry, inside information on Awards screenings plus privileged access to the inside of the industry - what more can a film lover want?
I feel like it is our duty as lovers of Australian film to spread the word to support this industry, knowing that there is so much incredible, raw talent here, with often not enough funds to support it. I know when this starts to gather some real steam, we as a country can really get behind the industry which will surely flourish and conquer!
