AACTA CEO Damian Trewhella, said “It’s been such a rollercoaster year for Australian film that’s included many fantastic achievements. Despite a large majority of cinemas experiencing closures due to lockdowns and numerous productions shut down or put on hold, the creativity and resilience of our industry is something to be marvelled. We’re pleased to have 33 feature films in competition this year including many that have already garnered commercial success and critical acclaim. Our members have been highly engaged and actively voting across all award categories this year, and we expect to see this continue for the 2021 AACTA Film Awards.”
