Current & Upcoming
The Gallery’s Australian Cinémathèque, at GoMA, presents retrospective and thematic film programs and exhibitions, exploring the important lines of influence between the moving image and other areas of visual culture, and showcasing the work of influential filmmakers and artists. Its mission is to collect, conserve, present and interpret film and screen culture.
Facilities include two cinemas, with more than 300 seats combined. The smaller cinema features retractable seating to allow for multimedia performances and events. There is also a dedicated media gallery for screen-related exhibitions, and facilities for video production.
Significant international, Asian, Pacific, Australian and Indigenous Australian artists are represented in the Gallery’s film and moving-image collection. Other collection development areas include video art that responds to the specific history and genres of cinema; animation, especially from Asia; and conceptual art and its legacy through performance.
The Gallery’s Australian Cinémathèque is an Associate Member of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), an organisation of the world’s leading film archives dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of film.
