Book: Shining a Light – 50 Years of the Australian Film Institute

Since its establishment in 1958, the AFI has played a central role in nurturing and supporting both screen culture and production, from the Australian film industry’s small beginnings to its development into an internationally recognised billion dollar industry. Shining a Light maps out the history of the AFI and the wider industry over the past fifty years and explores the relationship of screen culture to a successful production industry.

The book offers a timely and significant contribution to scholarship on Australian cinema, and is published at a critical time in Australian film history. The authors have interviewed key players on the local scene, undertaken twenty-seven interviews, and sifted through volumes of documentary evidence to chronicle the history of the AFI, its successes and role in Australian screen culture past, present and future.
