Australian international cinema

19 Nov 2006
Description

This article argues that contemporary debates around Australian cinema and audiovisual production here are too narrow. This prevents us from considering fully what that production entails for Australian cinema, what it means, who it speaks to, and how it could spark new conversations about the possibilities of filmmaking and storytelling in this country. Instead, Ben Goldsmith advocates for the reconceptualisation of Australian cinema as an international rather than a national cinema, in which Australian film (and by extension Australian cultural identity) is not understood as a fixed thing or possession, but rather as an evolving, changing, set of relations.
