Next update March 2021

An average of 30 Australian feature films (including co-productions) have been released for the first time on video each year since 1985, initially on VHS, with DVD releases starting in the late 1990s. In 2007, VHS ceased to be a release format for Australian films. The first Blu-ray release of an Australian fim was in 2008.

A substantial number of back catalogue titles have also been released on DVD, with 178 titles from the mid-1990s or earlier released in this format between 1998 and 2006. These are not included in the figures below.
