While underground film has a decades-long history in the United States, it’s a much newer form in Australia, where the first underground film festival was established in 2000 in Melbourne, followed by Sydney in 2007 and Brisbane in 2010. Underground film in Australia, at this stage of its evolution, is a mixture of work from experimental filmmakers, visual artists working with the moving image, and new, inexperienced directors, many with no formal training. This program brings together some of the recent films from this movement.
