This book provides coverage of the diversity of Australian film and television production between 2000 and 2015. In this period, Australian film and television have been transformed by new international engagements, the emergence of major new talents and a movement away with earlier films’ preoccupation with what it means to be Australian. With original contributions from leading scholars in the field, the collection contains chapters on particular genres (horror, blockbusters and comedy), Indigenous Australian film and television, women’s filmmaking, queer cinema, representations of history, Australian characters in non-Australian films and films about Australians in Asia, as well as chapters on sound in Australian cinema and the distribution of screen content. The book is both scholarly and accessible to the general reader. It will be of particular relevance to students and scholars of Anglophone film and television, as well as to anyone with an interest in Australian culture and creativity.

This edited collection assesses the complex historical and contemporary relationships between US and Australian cinema by tapping directly into discussions of national cinema, transnationalism and global Hollywood. While most equivalent studies aim to define national cinema as independent from or in competition with Hollywood, this collection explores a more porous set of relationships through the varied production, distribution and exhibition associations between Australia and the US. To explore this idea, the book investigates the influence that Australia has had on US cinema through the exportation of its stars, directors and other production personnel to Hollywood, while also charting the sustained influence of US cinema on Australia over the last hundred years. It takes two key points in time—the 1920s and 1930s and the last twenty years—to explore how particular patterns of localism, nationalism, colonialism, transnationalism and globalisation have shaped its course over the last century. The contributors re-examine the concept and definition of Australian cinema in regard to a range of local, international and global practices and trends that blur neat categorisations of national cinema. Although this concentration on US production, or influence, is particularly acute in relation to developments such as the opening of international film studios in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and the Gold Coast over the last thirty years, the book also examines a range of Hollywood financed and/or conceived films shot in Australia since the 1920s.

'There is an Australian dream that is collective. It goes to the roots of what it means to be Australian, since it's imprinted in Australia's history, the collective acts of its peoples, their attitudes, their gestures, what and how they eat, how they spend their leisure time, and the way such things reflect upon and derive from who they are.' In The Land of Plenty, Mark Davis argues that this dream has been forsaken. Over the past few decades Australians have felt the ground shift beneath their feet. Many people are asking why Australia is no longer the egalitarian place it once was. While the airwaves sing and newspaper front pages burst with news of how prosperous Australians are, many people wonder why they are working harder and longer, for so little, while important social agendas have fallen by the wayside. The Land of Plenty is at once a devastating record of the changes that have taken place in Australian society since the 1980s, and a goldmine of ideas for change. Insightful, provocative and thoroughly original, The Land of Plenty is a manifesto for our times.

A three-volume project tracing key critical positions, people and institutions in Australian film, Australian Film Theory and Criticism interrogates not only the origins of Australian film theory but also its relationships to adjacent disciplines and institutions. The second volume in the series, this book gathers interviews with national and international film theorists and critics to chart the development of different discourses in Australian film studies through the decades. Seeking to examine the position of film theorists and their relationship to film industry practitioners and policy-makers, this volume succeeds mightily in reasserting Australian film’s place on the international scholarly agenda.

This book offers the first substantive academic study of Australian horror cinema. More specifically, it examines the dominant thematic concerns, generic conventions, and stylistic motifs at the core of an Australian horror cinema tradition. This research interrogates the cultural mythologies that shape these concerns, and investigates the "Australianness" of Australian horror movies. In terms of its approach, the book is a combined genre study and cultural history. Rather than a chronological examination of texts by historical period, the analysis examines distinct subgenres, aesthetic groupings, and tropes that characterize Australian horror cinema. The focus of analysis is on understanding these textual groupings in terms of themes, plots, narrative conventions, settings, and, to a lesser extent, style, as well as distilling the social and cultural meaning of these films. While the book’s emphasis is on understanding Australian horror movies in terms of culturally distinct tropes, the discussion also includes analysis of transnational issues and contexts.

"Ungeschliffener Diamant", 2007 als bestes australisches Debüt ausgezeichnet, erzählt von den Herausforderungen des Erwachsenwerdens in einer globalisierten Welt: Als Tochter chinesisch-kambodschanischer Einwanderer wächst Alice mitten in Melbourne zwischen Hausgöttern, Aberglauben und strengen Traditionen auf. Doch schon bald kommt ihr die Welt der Eltern exotischer vor als die neue Heimat. Mal ernst und verzweifelt, dann wieder augenzwinkernd ironisch entfaltet dieses erzählerische Juwel seinen unwiderstehlichen Charme.
