Presenting the Australian New Wave: 10 bold and provocative films that put Australian cinema on the world stage in the 1970s and 80s. 
Starting in the early 1970s, a resurgence of government funding for film production gave birth to a generation of new voices and a renaissance of Australian cinema.  
The Australian New Wave is defined by its distinctive and raw storytelling, which redefined Australia as a land of open spaces, sudden violence and sexual expression.  
The films of this era also began to address Australia’s relationship with – and mistreatment of – First Nations people.  
From this time emerged some of Australia’s most pivotal filmmakers, such as Peter Weir, Bruce Beresford, Fred Schepisi and Nadia Tass.  
In collaboration with Umbrella Entertainment, the NFSA revisits this landmark era in Australian cinematic storytelling with a monthly series from February to November.
