INDEPENDENT CINEMAS WELCOME AUSTRALIAN MADE WEEK 15 – 21 MAY 2023
Independent Cinemas Australia (ICA), an Industry Partner of Australian Made Campaign Ltd, are proud to lend our voices in support of Australian made feature films and feature documentaries during Australian Made Week 2023.
“Telling our own stories and seeing them at the cinema is not only vital to our culture and identity but to the economic resilience of local communities and the ecosystem of the Australian film industry” said Adrianne Pecotic CEO of Independent Cinemas Australia. “ICA cinemas are getting behind the Australian producers and the exceptional teams that create the stories we love to experience in the cinema by screening a trailer produced by Screen Producers Australia to celebrate Australian content.”

ICA cinemas are getting behind the Australian producers and the exceptional teams that create the stories we love to experience in the cinema by screening a trailer produced by Screen Producers Australia to celebrate Australian content.
Australian stories in cinema now or coming soon include the feature films SWEET AS and LIMBO and the feature documentaries THE GIANTS, JOHN FARNHAM:FINDING THE VOICE and THE LAST DAUGHTER.
As a special event for Australian Made Week ICA and Roadshow Films are running special My Cinema Select previews of SWEET AS, promoting local and indigenous storytelling.
The Preview Screenings at participating ICA Cinemas will feature a recorded interview with SWEET AS Writer/director Jub Clerc about her creative journey which inspired the film. ICA and participating independent cinemas are also offering the chance to win a SWEET AS My Cinema Select $5,000 Prize
Australian films in production include FORCE OF NATURE, star Eric Bana reprising his role as Aaron Falk (THE DRY) in writer/director Robert Connolly’s adaptation of Jane Harper’s novel due to be released in August and Warrick Thornton’s THE NEW BOY starring Cate Blanchett and premiering in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival in May.
“Australian filmmakers, directors, writers and crew are not only warmly appreciated at our local indie cinemas, they are regularly front and centre at international awards and festivals” said Scott Seddon ICA President and Acting CEO “Australian Made Week urges Australians to think and buy local. Come along with your family and friends and join us to celebrate Australian films, Aussie products, and Australian owned independent cinemas across the country during Australian Made Week 2023.”
