518    Originally produced by Advance Australian Film in 2014. 
520    "Rich, provocative and essential viewing for anyone who 
       values Australian stories” - Steve Dow, The Guardian. 
       Advance Australian Film is an investigative, thought-
       provoking documentary that explores the inner-workings of 
       the Australian film industry, celebrating some of our key 
       successes and examining the changes occurring across the 
       global filmmaking landscape - with crowdfunding social 
       media marketing and video-on-demand platforms empowering 
       filmmakers like never before and changing the way movies 
       are being produced and accessed. The film charts the 
       history of Australian Cinema, beginning with the world's 
       first feature film, The Story of the Ned Kelly Gang and 
       chronicles its development to the present day. During the 
       1980s and 1990s, the industry produced an array of crowd-
       pleasing classics such as Crocodile Dundee, Strictly 
       Ballroom, Muriel’s Wedding and Priscilla Queen of the 
       Desert. But since then, the industry has been suffering 
       from a steady decline. For the past decade, Australian 
       films have consistently grossed under 5% of annual box 
       office revenues, taking in a dismal 2.5% share for 2014 - 
       the second lowest figure since 1977. Emerging independent 
       filmmaker, Courtney Dawson has experienced first hand just
       how hard it is to get a film off the ground in Australia. 
       She talks with Australia’s film heroes and movie greats 
       including David Stratton (At the Movies), PJ Hogan 
       (Muriel’s Wedding), Kriv Stenders (Red Dog), Emile Sherman
       (King’s Speech) and conducts red carpet interviews with 
       some of the world’s biggest stars including Russell Crowe,
       Joel Edergton, Baz Luhrmann, Matt Damon and Carey 
       Mulligan. She also undertakes in-depth discussions with 
       top industry professionals including film historians, 
       distributors, publicists, media teachers and producers. 
       Dawson gives us informative facts and some hard-hitting 
       answers which encourages hope for a new climate of 
       optimism and reconnection with audiences. It's time to 
       Advance Australian Film. Join the discussion on Facebook 
       and Twitter. "Intelligent, brutally honest, but also 
       hopeful" - Sally Knight, ABC Radio. “An important 
       examination of the Australian film industry. Powerful and 
       inspiring” - Video & Filmmaker Magazine.
