Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne)




Stories that transport you. Ideas that transform you. Immerse yourself in the world of film, television and digital culture at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).

ACMI celebrates, explores and promotes the cultural and creative richness of the moving image in all its forms - film, television and digital culture.

Through a vibrant calendar of award-winning Australian and international exhibitions, films, festivals, live events, creative workshops, education programs and Collection resources, ACMI provides diverse audiences with unsurpassed ways to engage with the moving image.

The centrepiece is a new, free entry, permanent exhibition charting the journey of the moving image and, in particular, Australia's engagement with screen culture as consumer and creator. Screen Worlds: The Story of Film, Television and Digital Culture is a unique, interactive and immersive exhibition that dynamically illustrates how each of the forms of the moving image have emerged and evolved as a powerful creative medium.

The exhibition is the cornerstone of the major development project which also includes a second special exhibition space, two new state-of-the-art production studios, a new national screen culture resource centre - the Australian Mediatheque - and a unique external exhibition space, the Video Garden.

Review:


Fun, interesting, centrally located and free - a visit is definitely recommended when you are in the vicinity of Federation Square. The free Screen Worlds exhibition has something for all members of the family including some bouts of nostalgia for Mum and Dad.

Downstairs at the Flinders Street side is an area with seats where the family can chill out. This is outside Screen Worlds which tells the story of film, television and digital culture.

Subject areas include the arrival of television, the arrival of digital broadcasting and especially for the kids, the arrival of videogames. It is a chance to play some of the classic video-games. There are sections on the digital age, the revolution of World Series Cricket, Man landing on the moon, Skippy, Dame Edna, Australian soapies and Mad Max.

There are interactive areas where you can mix your own movie by selecting music, sound effects and dialog, create a silhouette film and explore various ways of interacting (this is great fun where you can create images on the screen by moving your arms and hands).

There is also an area with more modern video games which you can play.
