QAGOMA is the only Australian art gallery with purpose-built facilities dedicated to film and the moving image – the Australian Cinémathèque. We present retrospective and thematic programs and exhibitions that showcase the work of influential filmmakers and artists and explore the lines of influence between the moving image and other areas of visual culture.

The 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.

Please note for our ticketed film programs the GOMA Box Office opens one hour prior to screenings and you are able to purchase snacks and refreshments during this time. As we do not screen trailers prior to films we suggest you arrive early to allow plenty of time to enter and find a seat.

For newcomers to the Cinémathèque here's a map and information to help you find your way.
