Immigration DVD

Film Australia   |   Australia

An exploration of immigration and Australia - the people, policies and propaganda. Reasons for Submission: Film Australia has made more than 100 films relating to immigration since 1946 - the largest single archival source in Australia for films on this topic. The producers set out to make a DVD that looked at the intersection of film, migration and politics. In particular, they wanted to look at the way film was used to promote the government's migration schemes and to encourage the acceptance of new migrants to Australia. The aim was to bring the best of the rich source to light in a DVD for a general audience and for use in schools and tertiary colleges.
