Two Minutes Silence
In 1979, Gillian Armstrong's My Brilliant Career was a landmark film. Not only a popular period piece fundamental to the revival of Australian cinema, it was the first feature film to be directed by a woman in Australia in almost half a century.

In Beyond and Behind the Silver Screen: The Hidden History of Australian Women's Work With Film, author and academic Mary Tomsic looks at the fascinating look at the often forgotten ways women worked with the moving image, regulated film culture and promoted film as a suitable medium for their creative and political work.
