About us

We are your museum of screen culture. Navigate the universe of film, TV, videogames and art with us.

Located in the heart of Melbourne's Fed Square, ACMI (formerly Australian Centre for the Moving Image) celebrates the wonder and power of the world's most democratic artform – fostering the next generation of makers, players and watchers.

Before we reopen our doors on 11 Feb 2021, experience our museum online. Check out our vibrant calendar of exhibitions, films, talks and commissions that celebrate our shared screen culture.
