Summary Advance Australian Film is an exciting, informative investigation into the Australian Film industry. Independent filmmaker Courtney Dawson takes the viewer on an exploratory journey that chronicles the development and inner workings of Australian cinema. It's been 20 years since an Australian film has reached number one at the yearly box office, and our films have consistently grossed under 5% of annual movie revenues for over a decade. Through in depth discussions with key industry figures and careful analysis of Australia's past movie successes, Advance Australian Film explores the challenges facing the industry today, and ultimately seeks solutions for a brighter future. The documentary also examines the changes occurring across the world, with crowd-funding, social media marketing and alternative distribution models empowering filmmakers like never before and changing the way movies are being produced and accessed. Featuring one-on-one interviews with influential filmmakers, historians, academics, critics, distributors, publicists, as well as red carpet interviews with some of the world's biggest stars including Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Baz Luhrmann, Joel Edgerton, Matt Damon, Richard Roxburgh, Jessica Mauboy and more!
