ABOUT THE AACTA INTERNATIONAL AWARDS

The AACTA International Awards are held annually in Los Angeles and recognise film excellence, regardless of geography, across seven categories: Best Film, Best Direction, Best Screenplay, Best Lead Actor, Best Lead Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

The Awards are determined by AACTA’s International Chapter, which is comprised of over 140 of Australia’s most recognised filmmakers and executives who come from a range of crafts and have a wealth of local and international experience. Around half of AACTA International Chapter members are also members of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscars), and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and include members from the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Past AACTA International Award winners include Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, Quentin Tarantino, Rooney Mara, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jacki Weaver, Dev Patel, Casey Affleck, and Cate Blanchett.

"We are delighted by the reception the Awards have received from the international community.  Australian performers and filmmakers have welcomed having this platform which allows them to take part in the international awards conversation, and to recognise and celebrate Australian talents alongside their international peers.”

AACTA President, Geoffrey Rush
