The films and television series featured on this map are representative of diverse models of screen production, from small independent works to big-budget feature films. They have been supported by a range of screen organisations including the Indigenous Branch of Screen Australia (formerly Film Australia), state film agencies, Indigenous production units in Australian public broadcasting services (ABC, SBS), Remote Indigenous Media organisations, the National Indigenous Television service (NITV), and, more recently, global media companies. When story location is not known, we have used production company location.

To look after cultural knowledge is a huge privilege, actually. I want to fight for that. I want to do my very best job. And I want to be involved in all those issues so we, as Aboriginal people, can nut them out together and detangle what they are and how they affect everyone, so we can work out the best way forward for us. And, hopefully, that will make for a better film.
