AFI Membership - Open to All


Membership with AFI (AACTA’s public arm - open to all screen fans) provides a unique opportunity to see Australian film, television, documentary and short film exclusives, and to hear first-hand from the people who make them.

AFI members in Melbourne and Sydney join AACTA members (screen practitioners) at more than 80+ complimentary year-round screening and events valued at more than $600, including screenings, Q&As and Masterclasses.

Members nationwide receive cinema discounts (including at Event Cinemas, Cinema Nova, Palace, Village and Hoyts), film festival discounts, film magazine subscription discounts, access to monthly giveaways on Facebook, archives access, and access to AACTA TV online – showing feature films, feature length documentaries, short fiction films and short animations competing for the AACTA Awards.

AFI members also vote in the short film categories of the AACTA Awards. With 75% of AACTA Award winners receiving new opportunities and a third receiving new funding following their win, your vote matters!

By supporting AFI | AACTA, you’re also supporting new initiatives, including our #SocialShorts powered by Genesis short film competition for emerging talent.

With more than 93% of AFI members surveyed recommending membership, we hope that you support the Australian screen industry and become a member today.








"AFI membership offers generous benefits, supports the Australian screen industry and has opened my eyes to the depth and vibrancy of the industry. It has changed the way I view Australian films and is worthy of so much more support."

"Discounted cinema entry, inside information on awards screenings plus privileged access to the inside of the industry - what more can a film lover want?"

"I feel like it is our duty as lovers of Australian film to spread the word to support this industry, knowing that there is so much incredible, raw talent here, with often not enough funds to support it. I know when this starts to gather some real steam, we as a country can really get behind the industry which will surely flourish and conquer!"
