  1. ‘Chopper’. As an Australian filmmaker myself (short films so far but it’s only early in my career), it’s not enough that an Australian film has a message and is culturally significant. It also has to be entertaining. Chopper does this magnificently. Not only does it make a strong statement about the protagonist’s upbringing and behaviour in the story, but it does so with a huge watchability that a lot of similar films lack.
    I think it should be required viewing for all film studies students.

  2. The Dress Maker is my favourite Australian film for a number of reasons.
    It captures the unique way in which Australians tell stories with meaning in and unexpected and quirky way. It also represents the international Union of Australian film making and the rest of the world – attracting such a high profile actor to play the lead. The way we tell stories is becoming more and more appreciated internationally and this film not only represents art but also the economic future of Australian films.

  3. The Dressmaker has to be my current favorite Australian film at the minute.
    Its not only a humorous film but a mystery well told.
    Kept you thinking and laughing throughout the movie and yes add a bit of tears to that too.
    Loved every minute of it!
