Australian theatrical feature production
Activity summary

Number produced, total budgets and spend in Australia

Next update December 2024

This section provides an overview of Australian theatrical feature production from 1995/96 onwards. Specifically, titles made for an intended first-release in cinemas.

Australian theatrical features saw total expenditure of $363 million in 2022/23, a 54% decrease in spending since 2021/22, and 17% below the 5-year average. This drop can be attributed to having fewer big-budget theatrical features, with only one big-budget title in 2022/23. In contrast, the previous year's record-high spending was driven by several big-budget features such as FuriosaFoe, and Better Man.
