Be part of the ACMI journey

Since 2002, ACMI has been helping Victorians navigate the world of the moving image. We’re the national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art and take this responsibility very seriously.

Last year alone, over 720,000 visitors enjoyed our free exhibitions – including Screen Worlds.

In 2017 we expanded our online education programs in coding, filmmaking and digital technologies reaching 173,000 kids.

More than 40,000 parents and children took part in our free Family Sundays – from creating an art-making robot to coding their very own video games.

We’re touring our award-winning exhibitions to regional Australia and international audiences which last year reached 550,000 people. 

Our goal is to ensure the moving image is accessible to all. 

Here's how your tax-deducible donation will help: 

Give $25
buys us a box of gloves for museum conservators to handle fragile objects.

Give $50
provides one VR headset for our family workshops.

Give $85
to allow us to freight a 25kg canister of Aki Kaurismäki’s films from Sydney to Melbourne.

Give $200
and we'll be able to ship a touring exhibition crate to a regional Victorian gallery, like Warrnambool, Bendigo or Gippsland.

Give $400
and we can supply a new projector light bulb to illuminate the moving image in our beautiful spaces.

Give $1,200
to help us produce a Perspex box to protect fragile costumes for public display.

Give $1,600
and we can design a specialised experience for people who are blind or have low vision discover our latest Wonderland exhibition.

Your support will ensure that everybody regardless of circumstance can enjoy our vibrant programs.
