A unique institution at the heart of Melbourne's iconic meeting place, Federation Square, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) celebrates, explores and promotes the moving image in all its forms - film, television and digital culture.

Through award-winning Australian and international exhibitions, films, festivals, live events, creative workshops, education programs and resources, ACMI provides unsurpassed ways to engage with the moving image.

Starting life as the State Film Centre in 1946, ACMI evolved from being a collection-based institution to an internationally recognised hub for screening and advocacy, screen education, industry engagement and audience involvement.

As a major cultural, tourism and learning attraction, ACMI is an integral element in Melbourne's position as one of the world's truly creative cities.
