Contemporary Indigenous film and television: new frames of understanding.
Grant number: DP140102789 | Funding period: 2014 - 2019
Australian Indigenous film and television has exploded into the mainstream of the national media landscape over the last five years and is now a leading sector of the local industry. This research project, an interdisciplinary collaboration between an Indigenous and two non-indigenous scholars, aims to produce new frames for understanding this film and television in its local, national and international contexts. The research will result in a re-evaluation of the Australian audio-visual heritage that will result in greater recognition of and opportunities for Indigenous creative producers in the future.
