AFI Membership - Film and TV Fans
AFI Membership is the Australian Academy's public arm and is open to all film and television fans. It provides a unique opportunity to see Australian film, television, documentary and short film premieres, and to hear first-hand from the creators who made them.
In Melbourne and Sydney, AFI members join industry professionals at 40+ complimentary Film Previews and Television Premieres each year, along with opportunities to meet cast and crew through Q&A sessions and In-Conversation events.
Members also receive nationwide cinema, film festival and magazine discounts as well as 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 have voting rights within the AACTA Award short film categories. With 75% of AACTA Award winners receiving new opportunities and a third receiving new funding following their win, your vote makes a difference!
By supporting the Australian Academy, you’re also supporting new initiatives, including our #SocialShorts short film competition for emerging talent. With more than 93% of AFI members surveyed recommending membership, we trust you’ll support Australia’s thriving film and television industry by becoming 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!"
