About ACMI Advocates

Through our Admit +1 Access Program, ACMI is partnering with the not-for profit sector to target young people who would have the most to gain from our education opportunities, yet who would otherwise miss out. 

All those who donate over $200 to the Admit +1 Program will become an ACMI Advocate for 12 months. Advocates are offered invitations to a program of exclusive events, openings, tours, special offers and public acknowledgement.

You can donate by cheque - made payable to ACMI - and by sending it to: Andrew Evans; Senior Development Officer; ACMI; Reply Paid 14; FLINDERS LANE VIC 8009.

You can also donate by calling 03 8663 2408 or by making a donation of your choice below. 

Please note: Donations do not constitute signing up to an automatic annual direct debit. As we would love you to become an annual donor, we will be in touch in a year to ask whether you would like to make another donation.

All donations to ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) over $2.00 are tax deductible.

ACMI Friend $200

Your $200 donation will ensure one young person can attend a day long intensive film-making workshop or will enable a full class to tour ScreenWorlds, our upcoming Aardman exhibition and participate in a tailored learning activity. Alternatively, it will enable six children to attend a family Lego robotics workshop alongside their parents.

ACMI Benefactor $500

Your help will enable us to rent a bus to bring groups of newly arrived refugee children and their families to attend ACMI for a day of learning activities including either a film or entry to our upcoming Aardman show. Alternatively, it will enable 25 young people to make a 360 degree virtual reality movie.

ACMI Partner $1000

Your $1000 support will enable 50 students to attend a one-day workshop to learn how to produce a stop-motion animation, learning skills they can easily utilise at home.

ACMI Leader $2500

Your donation of $2500 will enable five scholarships for aspirational film-making teenagers to attend a week-long Advanced Movie Making course where they can learn a broad range of skills as they make a short film.

Major Advocates


Your support will cover the cost of over 400 scholarships for young people to attend day-long intensive workshops in games design, development and coding so they can make their own video games.
