About ACMI

Scroll to content

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is Australia’s national museum of film, TV, videogames, digital culture and art. Since we opened our doors in 2002, ACMI has become the most successful museum of its kind in the world.

ACMI celebrates the past, present and future of the moving image with a vibrant program of exhibitions, screenings, installations and commissions, festivals, and public, industry and education programs. Our vision is a connected community of watchers, players and makers sharing in the wonder of the moving image.

Museum

ACMI’s Fed Square site closed its doors in May 2019 to undergo a building-wide transformation. We are expected to reopen mid-2020.

Our renewal includes:

  • a new free permanent exhibition that takes audiences on an immersive journey into the past, present and future of the moving image through interactive experiences, amazing objects and captivating stories
  • state of the art education spaces
  • a new media preservation lab
  • cinemas presenting the very best of screen culture from Australia and around the world
  • a revitalised shop, café and bar.
