Promoting cultural awareness by providing Indigenous communities and the broader Australian public with free access to Indigenous films.
Black Screen promotes cultural awareness and Indigenous screen culture, provides entertainment to communities and brings them together in discussion. We support the industry by showcasing Australia’s Indigenous talent on and off screen.
Our DVDs of contemporary Indigenous Australian films are available to individuals and organisations for use at screening events, festivals and community celebrations. The collection includes short film and documentaries by renowned filmmakers such as Warwick Thornton, Ivan Sen, Wayne Blair, Adrian Wills and Beck Cole.
The program runs throughout the year, taking content to remote Indigenous locations which may not otherwise get the chance to see their own stories on screen.
Celebrate NAIDOC Week with a screening of Indigenous films
NAIDOC celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. A screening of Indigenous films can be a great addition to your community celebration!
Black Screen DVDs are available free of charge for public screenings. Each DVD contains a selection of contemporary Indigenous short films and is provided on a loan basis for use at a special event or festival.
Volumes 14 and 15 are now available, featuring two engaging and compelling feature length films and three short dramas.
