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.

Colonialism has ruptured Indigenous peoples’ lives. I see filmmaking as an opportunity for Indigenous people to reconnect: to emphasise connections between ourselves, and our shared connection with the land.
