Film & Television Screenings With Q&As
AFI members recieve exclusive opportunities to see the latest Australian feature films and television productions before their cinema and on-air releases at year-round member screenings. 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 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.
AACTA's Masterclass Series (complimentary to AFI members) brings together some of the world's greatest film and television professionals to share their experience and expertise with our members. These Masterclasses provide you with the unique opportunity to hear from, question and be inspired by distinguished Australian filmmakers - many of whom have been awarded at home and abroad.
Some of Australia's leading filmmakers have joined us for past masterclasses, including: Oscar®, BAFTA and AACTA Award-winning cinematographer John Seale; Oscar® nominated and multi-BAFTA and AACTA Award-winning composer David Hirschfelder; Longford Lyell Award recipient and BAFTA nominated writer Andrew Knight; multi-AFI Award winning directors Jocelyn Moorhouse and Gillian Armstrong; and one of the world's leading creative digital studios Animal Logic.

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!
