Scroll to content

Decolonising the Australian film industry and how First Nations people want to be portrayed are the current debates with Aboriginal and Torres Strait actors, directors and producers. Our host Leila Gurruwiwi (from Marngrook Football Show) along with guest panelists; award winning author Uncle Bruce Pascoe, playwright and filmmaker Tracey Rigney  and academic Crystal McKinnon had a provocative discussion on Aboriginal identity and the Australian film and television industry. Our panelists explored how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been showcased within the industry  and what needs to be achieved by Indigenous film and television practitioners to take control of their identity.

This event was co-produced by Tony Briggs and Damienne Pradier for Typecast Entertainment.
