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 one of the most successful museums 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.


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

While our home at Fed Square is closed for redevelopment, we are running a series of virtual programs for screen lovers and providing free online talks, workshops and education resources. See what's on.


Immerse yourself in the ideas behind our exhibitions, events and cinema program, and the themes that underpin screen culture. Essays, interviews, recommendations and more can be found on our Ideas page. 


ACMI is also the creative hub for many moving image artists at our co-working space ACMI X.
