AFI Membership — Calling all screen enthusiasts
The Australian Film Institute (AFI) was created in 1958 by those with a passion for film.
Since then, the AFI has remained committed to connecting Australians and audiences around the world with great Australian film and television content.
Whether through programming special anniversary screenings of classic Australian films restored from National Film & Sound Archive prints, hosting complimentary preview screenings of the latest Australian films, or creating Twitter, Facebook or Blog posts to celebrate the international achievements of an Australian practitioner, performer or transmedia creator, the AFI is committed to connecting members with great Australian content.
Other member benefits include receiving an insider’s view of the industry through our fortnightly e-News and our regularly updated websites, as well as the chance to receive DVD and other giveaways throughout the year.
AFI TV is yet another way we promote and share access to premium Australian screen content. AFI and AACTA members are offered exclusive access to this online screening platform, providing an opportunity to watch the year’s nominated Short Fiction Films and Short Animations, and gain access to other quality curated content.
Our valued AFI members also contribute to the outcome of the annual AACTA Awards, and have the opportunity to vote in some categories of the annual AACTA Awards.
By becoming a member of our not-for-profit organisation, you not only keep abreast of Australian film and television news and content, but you are also helping us to promote Australian films, television, and our talented professionals to audiences throughout the world, in turn helping to create more opportunities and greater reach for our stories and the people who tell them Australian screen content.
For a full list of benefits, please see our member benefits section.
AFI membership is just $45 (concession) or $55 (adult) per annum.
