2007/08 has been a stunning year for Australian cinema, with films in all genres of exquisite quality.

Don’t miss all 2007 Australian Film Institute Award winners, including the acclaimed Romulus, my Father, starring Eric Bana, and Tony Ayres' The Home Song Stories.

Documentaries include Bra Boys, the most commercially successful Australian documentary of all time and a special music double bill on the bands Silverchair and The Triffids.

We are thrilled for the fifth year to present our shorts programme in association with Flickerfest, Australia’s premiere international short film festival. One of Flickerfest’s shorts is played before most feature film.

The Festival again includes the London edition of Tropfest, the inimitable Sydney-based open-air short film festival where 150,000 people gather to view sixteen finalist films selected from over 700 entries.

We are also delighted to present a showcase of the most acclaimed, award-winning Australian documentaries. Australian directors and technicians have established a reputation as some of the finest documentary makers in the world, and this year's selection all made compelling viewing.
